Director
Roman Bondarchuk
Like a bird, the Ukrainian flag flies perched on the car of two affable ‘sheriffs’ appointed by the mayor of a village in southern Ukraine. There’s a sly bum whose gift is not to work. There’s a guy who puts an anaconda in his woman’s shed. The Euromaidan arrives, and draft-dodgers abound. The townsfolk are dipping in icy water and laughing, but are they divided in their loyalties? These sheriffs are taking you along for the ride...
