A documentary about the catastrophic impact of the Russian war on the ecological state of nature in Ukraine. It is a journey from the harmonious life of nature to the fiery whirlwind of war that burns the land, forests and all living things. With the onset of spring, nature recovers and brings new life among animals, despite the irreparable destruction. However, the immense scale of the tragedy does not give hope for a quick restoration of nature and its purification from the remnants of war.
