From the window of a high-rise building, the great-grandmother gazes into the distance, somewhere to where her own house once stood on the blooming Polissia. Now it is forever abandoned, because the Chernobyl disaster brutally tore away not only a cozy home, but also the life of a loved one, as well as many others. Forced to evacuate hastily, the great-grandmother was forever branded as a "Chernobyl victim." She was left with only memories, and even those have faded over time. The only lifeline was the smell of the grasses, reminiscent of her native land, and her granddaughter's drawings, as sincere and full of life as those once created by another "Chernobyl victim" — Maria Pryimachenko.

It is to her granddaughter that the great-grandmother will tell her heartbreaking story, full of the bitterness of loss, but also of faith in the life that goes on.
