In March, 2013, with Ukraine on the brink of civil war, the crew of the award winning documentary Almost Holy travels into the country’s crossfire for a final round of filming. Along for the ride is Filipp, the crew’s Russian translator, who hasn’t been back to the former USSR since his family fled from it twenty years earlier. For Filipp, it is a wayward homecoming, his father’s worst nightmare. As he and the crew track the documentary’s hero Gennadiy, an iconoclastic pastor and vigilante, Filipp spins into an alternate universe, tasting the life that, if he never immigrated, could have been his own. But as the crew is met with the danger and unrest of the city, Filipp must re-color the memory of a world he once called home.
