My granny Zina lived in Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and after retirement moved to Crimea. Cheerful and bossy, she has always been uniting our big family. After geopolitical changes in Ukraine, visiting her became an endless hustle. Trying to fit into a new environment she ends up feeling mixed-up and lonely. The entire family manages to come for the celebration of the granny's 80th anniversary and help her make a crucial decision.
