The main character of this film is a war correspondent Vyacheslav Nemyshev who traveled to Chechnya in 2001 many times to report on the war for Russian TV but then decided to go live in Kamchatka and make films there. Somehow he’s being a director mostly while filming himself. Realizing the purpose of shooting a video blog, he seems to know in advance that he needs to peer into the reflection of his own eyes for self-reflection. However, when Kamchatka is in the frame, he prefers not to intervene, allowing the gaze of a quiet observer to become free and honest. “I wish cameras could shoot both sides to show you my satisfied face.” Well, Kamchatka really begins to be reflected while healing the hero with a new infection.
