Living in war-torn Eastern Ukraine Anna is an aging single mother who is desperate for a change. Lured by a radio advertisement, she goes to party with a group of American men who are touring the country, searching for love.
In a small supermarket in a blue collar town, a black man smiles at a 10-year-old white boy across the checkout aisle. This innocuous moment sends two gangs into a ruthless war that ends with a shocking backlash.

Ashmina seeks self-determination in a patriachal society
The film shows a young woman in Nepal, who wants a more self-determined life and thereby encounters social and family boundaries. It is frightening, as the story also reminds of our own holiday experiences with locals and the arrogance of western travelers hurts. The film is quietly told, but has a certain tension in the background. It stimulates reflection and is aesthetically pleasing.
