As a consequence of the war, Zlata was stuck there for two years, and during that period, she lost countless numbers of friends and family.

For example, this is shown when Zlata’s friend is killed by shrapnel from a shell.

We were living in a black and white world because everything with color was destroyed and the sun doesn’t even hit this place anymore. It was like a movie scene after a war, but instead, it was happening right in front of our eyes and was flipping and destroying everything that we have worked for around here.
