Afghanistan. The point of no return

This film is about a life which never happened. Or, to be exact - about a life, which ended. Reality and fantasy, footage of interviews and reflections of a woman are weaved into an inextricable fabric of a narrative.

This film is about how a political decision made on December 12, 1979 during a meeting of Politburo, changed the lives of people and the country for decades to come, and became a point of no return for a generation, which was a part of the late '80s, as well as the entire Soviet system which did not stand the test of the Afghan war.
