House made of SplintersSimon Lereng Wilmont
Three children temporarily removed from their parents find friendship and a spark of hope within the walls of an orphanage in eastern Ukraine. In this war-torn and impoverished region, where addiction casts a dark shadow over many families, three children await a decision about their near future: will they return or go to a new home? A moving and intimate portrait of a remarkable stopover where dedicated social workers try to give care, support and confidence to children who need it more than anything.
