Spaces tells the story of a man returning to his village from war, where two women accept him. The three cope with the time that has passed and their desire for support in their loneliness. Their meeting reflects the toll of war and the silenced voices of people who have grown tired of the image of heroism. They explore new ways to connect and to build a new present together. Spaces strive to create a space to deeply look at life, beauty, sadness, hope and the echo of humanity’s actions.
