Two young men returned from abroad to build Europe in their hometown. It's about Serhij Pronkin and Viktor Sotnikov from the frontline town of Druzhkivka in Donetsk region. Long before the war, they left the city just because they didn't know how to keep themselves busy there. Now Druzhkivka annually arranges music and sports fest, involving famous artists.

As part of the project "Close East", we go on telling about people who make Donbass better for fellow countrymen and closer to the whole country.

This film is presented by the 112 Ukraine TV channel in the framework of the project with the Ukraine Confidence Building Initiative (UCBI II), funded by the US agency of international development USAID. It is devoted to the people of Donbas region who have managed to change their lives in spite of the war unfolding in Eastern Ukraine.
