Eleven-year-old Olesia is facing the challenges of her new life in Brussels. Every evening she looks forward for her father's nightly call from back home in Ukraine. Sometimes a scream interrupts Olesia’s sleep. The girl accepts the sounds, textures, language of the new reality, gets disappointed but moves on, just like many other Ukrainian teenagers whom the war caught in different cities. Her mom supports her daughter on this path. But sometimes Olesia is the one who consoles her mother under the wing of the night.
