There are many beautiful places to die. Luxembourg is not one of them. But beautiful or not, Luxembourg makes dying very expensive. When twin brothers hear that their long-absent father is sick in Luxembourg, they go on a mission to locate him. Will the man they find be the bad-ass father that they remember?

Inspired by true events from his own upbringing, Lukich’s charming and melancholic sophomore film asks: Should children be responsible for their parents? What if they really don’t deserve it?! Taking place in a time before Russia’s war on Ukraine was raging throughout the entire country and threatening peace from East to West, Luxembourg, Luxembourg is a warm-hearted journey dedicated to parents — with their secrets and lies — and to their beloved songs that only make sense when we’re older.

"Luxembourg, Luxembourg" premiered at this year's Venice Film Festival.
