An engraving workshop in downtown Kiev: books on Jerome Bosch, animal skulls and impressive engravings illustrating Bulgakov, the Second World War or Chernobyl. Although the studio appears to be a hermetically sealed bubble frozen in time, the civil war can be heard through the television screen.

Over the course of a few months, while a new print inspired by the Maïdan conflict is being composed, prints and television images animate a dialogue between the artist and the young director, shedding light on the construction of Ukrainian identity. Like dreams, the engravings gradually come to life, revealing the work of history on the imaginary and the intimate.
