THE WILD FIELDS

by Yaroslav Lodygin

synopsis

Herman is forced to return from Kharkiv to this native town in Donbas in order to take over his brother’s petrol station which the cross-border mafia has its eye on. The wild fields surrounding it are a historical gateway from the East to the West – a place where different interests clash time and again. The events at the old petrol station become a model of the crazy life and social relationships in Ukraine, a witty allegory of the time when hints of the imminent Donbas war are in the air.
