In rural Ukraine, a girl, whose only treasure is a painted Easter egg, is shocked as her grandmother puts a freshly slaughtered chicken on the table. Confronted with death for the first time, she leaves the house, questioning her tranquil life, only to face a new tragedy that will force her to give up her treasures. An allegorical journey to self-transformation and growing up.
