Let’s look at the war through the eyes of children. Old people say that killed children become angels. If you do not listen to the whispers of the angels, the amount will become more and more.

DIY (do it yourself) became a very popular concept in Yugoslavia. And so it emerged the idea of building concrete yachts. However most of these boats remained unfinished, like the dreams of their builders, aging as those who have dreamt them up. Some of them are still there, after their owners are gone, a strange inheritance for their children – others are about to flip over on the
family house. And some – are still filled with adventure – and hope. This film explores what happens to our dreams – and how our love can ultimately be the thing that drags us to the bottom – happily.

Rekha loves her father, Bal-kumar, more than anything else in the world, and she and her father have an exceptionally close relation-ship, especially in a society where only sons are valuable and daughters are undesirable. Rekha is already 14, and time is running out for finding her a husband. She lives in a remote village in Nepal near the Indian border. In this region, child marriages are common. Although they are forbidden by law, the tradition lives on. Love marriage is a foreign concept here. Girls are wed before they have a chance to ruin their reputation – falling in love would bring dishonour upon them.

To regain his inheritance rights, Severin Nalyvayko (unrecognized son of Prince Dmytro Sangushko and Princess Halshka Ostrozka), at the head of an army of just as disenfranchised daredevils, fights against the army of the Commonwealth for the freedom of Ukraine: only in the free “Cossack Republic” can he restore justice and become who you are by right.
But the worst enemy of Nalyvayko is not the Polishes, but his own allies, the Cossacks, for whom the state of arrogance is stronger than the feelings of a single people.
