Demon by Yegor Troyanovsky

edition 2019


The film investigates kidnapping and alleged murder of a young Ukrainian soldier in the Donbas region in 2014. His father, an elderly fisherman from the south of Ukraine, follows the trail of his capturers.

Traveling from the calm Azov coastline to industrial conglomerates, from the furious mining region to the sleepless capital, the father tries to find the witnesses of his young soldier’s last hours and minutes… as well as those who could see him dead.

When the testimonies are inconsistent, when the lawyers don’t show up in courts, when it’s one down, one -- up, all what is left for the father is to take the law into his own hands.
