Sickfuckpeople is a documentary triptych about a group of homeless, who have survived their drug-addicted childhood, grew up and start to live an adult life. It’s a story about a boy facing the surreal, degenerated society of his native village full of hate and sadistic anger while searching for his mother. It’s a story about a pregnant girl who wants to give birth to her child whose childhood probably will be even worse than hers. But her own sisters are forcing her to make an abortion.


The film will be screened in Russian/Ukrainian with English subtitles.
