Masterfully written, directed and shot by Ukrainian filmmaker Valentyn Vasyanovych, Reflection is an extraordinary and profound meditation on the effects of war. Ukrainian surgeon Serhiy is forced to witness unspeakable horrors whilst captured by the Russian military forces in the conflict zone in Eastern Ukraine. After his release, he returns to his comfortable middle-class apartment and tries to find a purpose in life by rebuilding his relationship with his daughter and ex-wife. Serhiy must overcome his past trauma and learn how to be a human being again.
