The works of the Ukrainian-born artist, Zoya Cherkassky, sell for thousands of dollars, but their bright colours tell a story of immigration, survival, and alienation. The film follows her personal journey from Tel Aviv where she lives with her Nigerian husband to her childhood in Kyiv in search of a sense of home and belonging.
