February 2014. Start of the Crimean peninsula occupation. Cherkasy minesweeper, along with other Ukrainian ships, is blocked in Donuzlav Bay – the way to the sea is shut off by the scuttled vessels of the Russian fleet. It's a trap. Our ships start capitulating to the Russians. There seems to be no other way out.

This is the story of the last Ukrainian ship in the Crimea, which resisted and continued its brave struggle. The movie is based on actual events.

Dear film viewer!

We have a request for you: we will show the films for free, but we ask you to support Ukraine with a financial donation. This is also the wish of the filmmakers.

We are cooperating with MTÜ Slava Ukraini, which collects medical equipment and supplies, clothes and food, which are delivered directly to Ukraine by ambulances procured by Estonian Rotary clubs. During the last week, seven carloads of humanitarian aid have already been sent. This is the fastest way for your donation to reach Ukraine.

You can donate to MTÜ Slava Ukraini by calling the numbers:

9009003 - to donate 10 €
9009191 - to donate 25 €

Or make your donation directly to the account of MTÜ Slava Ukraini EE727700771007665845, indicating “MTÜ Slava Ukraini” as the payee and "Annetus" (Donation) as the description of the payment.

Thank you very much for your support!
