20-year-old Andriy and his family fled the Syrian civil war to his mother’s homeland in Lysychansk, in eastern Ukraine. There, he has joined the Red Cross as a volunteer and is involved in humanitarian work. In 2014, however, the Donbas conflict broke out, and the war retakes hold of him. When his father dies unexpectedly, Andriy decides to accompany him on his last journey, returning to Syria.
