This picturesque Ukrainian farm is not surrounded by fields, but by huge housing developments. Ominous cranes overlook Natasha’s land at the edge of Kiev, which year after year is being pushed deeper into a pit by new panel buildings. The brave owner protects not only acres of land, but also traditional family values, faith and ownership. From a bird’s-eye view of the farm, a sharp contrast emerges between the village and the city. This peculiar family business model is set forth in a four-year chronicle from the point of view of foreign visitors who don’t interfere with the way of life that the family has lived for generations.

So the pit, it’s the metaphor for all humanity. Like the metaphor. Everyone is in this pit. Everyone is fighting everyone. There are human pigs, and they live like pigs – eat themselves silly and drink to excess. Their lives are impure. This is a world where I feel nothing but bliss. And the word “bliss”, I´m not talking of bliss in a materiál sense. It’s a spiritual sense.
