The war has been going on for ﬁve years, and there are many Ukrainians who want to do something for their country. The rightwing Azov Regiment offers training for citizen militias, partly through summer camps for thousands of children. The ﬁlm follows Jasmin and Jastrip, two twelve-year-olds with very diﬀerent backgrounds. Summer camp teaches them how to make a bed, the beneﬁts of group identity, and how to assemble a Kalashnikov riﬂe. They are destined to become proud Ukrainians prepared to ﬁght and die for their country.
