Kyiv, February 2022. In the first days of the Russian massive invasion, a group of young ravers decide to stay at one of the capital's legendary techno clubs and turn the location into an anti-raid shelter and a volunteer hub, and are finding themselves in a vital yet multi-vectored romantic relationship.


Kyiv, Ukraine, February 2022. In the first days of Russian massive invasion a group of young ravers find shelter in one of the capital’s legendary techno clubs. The youngsters make a risky decision to stay in the city under attack and turn the club into an anti-raid shelter and a volunteer hub. The group turns into a polyamorous family connected by vital yet so multi-vectored romantic ties – a fragile construction that can be shattered both by missile strikes and their own menacing secrets.

They’re queer, they’re here, they love rave and they have a whole life ahead of them to mature and settle down. Or so they thought…
On February 24, 2022 one of Ukraine’s legendary techno clubs where our cool kids used to party along with thousands of others on the eve of the war, turns into a shelter and an air raid bunker.
When Kyiv becomes a target for the enemy, it is here, behind the thick walls of this once abandoned factory, that those who used to dance and play will hide from the bombs. A whole new meaning of a “safe space”.
They will help the injured, the military, and those in need. They will be annoyed, will try to solve their most urgent issues, will support themselves and each other. And will love each other.
A tentative throuple that will attract more people into its tempting network. An attempt to normalize life in completely abnormal conditions when the swelling and retreating emotional waves replace each other quicker than the newsfeed. And all events are unpredictable.
War is the most intense experience one can go through. But can it also be the most liberating?
