In this highly acclaimed film about the Second Chechen War, an elderly Russian woman transforms the barren landscape of war and the deadened spirit of those engaged in it. Aleksandra travels to a remote outpost in Chechnya to visit her grandson. Her engagement with Russian soldiers and Chechyan citizens make them question their assumptions about the war and their enemies through simple human connections.
