A cinematic cabaret show starring Ukraine's internationally famous multilingual and multi-instrumental punk female band The Dakh Daughters.
Shot over a number of years, this pseudo-musical documentary follows the punk cabaret project The Dakh Daughters in their creative endeavours as they put their exquisit artistic talents at work. They are in turn protesters at the famous Maidan square, artists in quest of ways to express their love for tradition and concern for what is going on in the country, and extremely entertaining performers. Director Irina Setsenko did the filming herself, being also the band's sound producer. The result is a fresh, intelligent and entertaining account of today's Ukraine reflected by a group of powerful original female artists.
