Return to Ukraine

The last time she was in Ukraine was this summer, for vacation. As soon as war was declared, journalist Tetiana Bigoun returned to the country of her childhood to find her family in the midst of the fighting. She takes us on a tour of a country under attack.

Her grandmother, who, having witnessed the Nazi murder her father and brother, never thought she would experience war again. Her parents, doctors who treat the wounded, who show us around their hospitals. We see children wounded, who have already lost family members. See hospitals that have already been attacked and finally speak to Tatiana’s brother, also a doctor working in besieged Kiev…. An incredibly moving story of the first days of war.
