A classical text by the great Russian writer from the beginning of the century Anton F. Chekhov about soldiers and aesthetics are transposed in our time. The documentary shootings of the war in Croatia, one of the Republics of the Ex-Yugoslavia, are used and integrated in an imaginary video story talking about wars, history, love and height.
