"Falling" is a story about the post-revolutionary generation of young Ukrainian people looking for their place in a modern Ukraine. It follows two bewildered people who meet at a crucial moment of their existence and experience seven days of happiness together.
Nobody wants to remember the real past but he still keeps it.
Grigory is 89. He has always lived in a lonely village nestled deep in the Ukrainian mountains. He keeps on filming (on) in 16mm his neighbours who don’t remember their real past. By shooting, developing, and editing his films over almost half a century, Grigory wants to capture the time on celluloid. He has neither followers, nor admirers. Our incidental meeting in the village turned out into making a new movie together...
This is a story of young people from nowhere, a story about anatomy of a break-up and finding oneself.
He and She come to the Ukrainian small village hidden in mountains, settle in a house and aimlessly roam the countryside. The guy tries to tell the girl about these places and every day she understands his delight more and more. It is their holidays, their escape into nature with the aim of understanding themselves.
