About the film

Four short stories are set along the roads of Donbass during the war. There are no safe spaces and no one can make sense of just what is going on. Even as they are trapped in the chaos, some manage to wield authority over others. But in this world, where tomorrow may never come, not everyone is defenseless and miserable. Even the most innocent victims may have their turn at taking charge.

What people are saying

One watches it with the hope that some day Natalya Vorozhbit will get to make another, and that Ukrainian cinemas will be open to show it, if theyre still standing.

Movie Nation

'Bad Roads' boasts an accomplished ensemble cast which does justice to a set of characters at the mercy of a cruel world.
