Presentation of the second part of “MA!” anthology film

Why this is interesting:
The creators of the short film about the russo-Ukrainian war “MA!” filmed the second part of the anthology, a short story called “Breathe with me.” The short is based on the story of a married couple. A man defends the country together with his brother on the front near Bakhmut. At this time, his wife is on her personal battlefield – in the delivery bed. Their poignant telephone conversation will reveal the tragedy of the situation, in which almost every Ukrainian family has found itself.
