Amulet of the Kingdom

(in Ukrainian with English subtitles)

Directed by Yaroslav Popov

Starring Taras Zhyrko and Natalie Yatsina


Synopsis:

A film group from Canada, led by a young journalist Sophie, visits a Ukrainian professor of archeology. Their goal is to record an interview about the best-selling book, The Guardian of the Nation, which the professor has worked on most of his life. The book intertwines legends and facts, evidence and assumptions. The professor claims that the Ukrainian nation originated in the time of the mammoth hunters. And continued its formation in the days of Trypillia and Kyivan Rus. Journalist Sophie is trying to understand how the world should react to such a discovery by a Ukrainian scientist. However, her interest hides something much more important for both of them. Ancient experiences and painful losses, seemingly securely buried under layers of time, hatred and deep resentment – all this comes to light. Will the professor and Sophie be able to understand each other, and most importantly, will they be able to forgive themselves.
