Updated: Mar 29, 2023

fiction series


After the Russia's invasion in Ukraine, a big family, all women who used to live a quiet and peaceful life in Kyiv, make up their mind to leave home and native Ukraine to save their lives from Russian bombings. With their family home destroyed by war and their relationships just as broken, can they survive in a foreign country, away from their roots?

A dangerous journey catalyses the conflicts between the mother, Natalia Berezhna, and her three adult daughters. They are all single and can't expect men to help them get to safety. On the evacuation train, the women are surrounded by refugees, each with their own drama. New encounters change Natalia's daughters' plans - all of them decide to stay in Ukraine, but follow separate ways. At the Polish border, it's only Natalia with her granddaughter...

She has to ask for help from an old acquaintance - a Polish man, Maciej Szymczak. She used to be in love with him, but he was married at the time. Natalia never told him, that she had his daughter. The man agrees to help Natalia, but when they meet he doesn't recognize her. The woman's feelings are hurt, but she still decides to go with Maciej and get shelter at a tiny Polish town's hotel...

After a while, all three of Natalia's daughters for various reasons end up at the same hotel. And not only them but also other refugees that were in that same car of the evacuation train. This comes as a surprise to Maciej who expected to host only Natalia and her grand daughter. The shelter seekers become one big family, and Maciej grows attached to them, like to his own kin and starts planning the future.
