"If there are more books in the East, and they are read, then maybe we won't have to buy bulletproof vests anymore..." says Anastasia Rozlutska, the film's protagonist.In the East and South of Ukraine, many people do not speak Ukrainian. Activists organise free courses for everyone, and bring book fairs, music bands, and meetings with writers to cities and towns. An elderly course participant said: "I want to learn Ukrainian so that no one else will think of 'protecting' me just because I speak Russian."
