I Will Die in a Foreign LandPickhart, Kalani
During the 2013-14 Euromaidan protests in Kyiv, thousands of Ukrainians protested against their country's move to alignment with Russia rather than the European Union. Conveying the events of this turbulent and violent period through the interwoven stories of their lives are Katya, an American Ukrainian doctor, Mish an engineer and friend of activist Slava, and Aleksandr, a reformed KGB agent.
Enriched with Ukrainian folklore and laying down the historical context for the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, this is a tragic and tender story of the Revolution of Dignity.
