Play trailer

The village of Osadné lies on the farthest eastern border of the European Union. Local Orthodox priest Peter Soroka has buried 50 people in the past five years and baptized merely two children. Soroka’s civilian counterpart is Mayor Ladislav Mikuláško, a political record-holder who has been the village bigwig for 36 years. These two unusual local patriots decide to take the future of Osadné into their own hands and, with the help of Ruthenian activist Fedor Vico, seek help from the highest authorities. In his “document-toury movie,” Marko Škop follows the protagonists on a journey to the European Parliament in Brussels where he witnesses their efforts to involve a friendly European deputy in strengthening the tourist industry in order to save it. Similar to his previous film Other Worlds (Iné svety), the director is concerned about the authenticity of the “non-globalized” individual, whom he here perceives far more in the context of his community, and confronts with the world beyond the borders of his native village.
