The miller who lives in an old water mill spends his time raising ducks. Therefore he is baking brad out of flies, while the hunters are shooting birds on the vast field in front of his window. In a misterious way all these elements are unseparably attached to each other.

Liza has a secret. It will be there, that place somewhere high above where nobody hurts anybody, where everything is beautiful. “That’s where we will live, my family and I.” Liza whispers to herself when she expresses her feelings, which are the focus of Oksana Buraja’s fairly provocative film. Her mother “counts to three”, then the tears must be wiped off and “commands to be merry” are issued. “Standing in the corner” is also part of the daily routine. The girl regularly runs away from home, away from this world of subalterns which is depicted as so deficient, disgusting and horrible that it feels like more than borderline voyeurism. But the focus is always on Liza. We watch her mother and a friend on their tipsy, smoky dancing parties (with men who are barely good enough for partying) from her perspective. Her child’s eyes create idyllic counter-worlds – from the Virgin Mary to a babbling brook. Liza walks barefoot, Liza sings. Liza whispers. Pure innocence. A child. It’s almost a miracle (but then again perhaps not) that she wants to have her family with her “up there” where it’s so nice.

She and he. Separated by a ceiling, unaware of each other's existence, unknowingly repeat the same gestures. Black and white, light and darkness, a man and a woman. Opposites that complement and penetrate each other. A compelling story about emotional entanglement.

A man has nothing to lose except his dream. To make the dream come true the man embarks on a dangerous journey, from Africa to Europe. But his destination is not what it seems. Satiric and surprising interpretation of a vulgar society.
