Summary, etc.:
Sergey Sergeyich is one of the last residents of a Ukrainian village in the "Grey Zone," a no-man's-land between loyalist and separatist forces in Crimea. Sergeyich's one pleasure in life is taking care of his bees. As spring approaches, he knows he must move the bees to a place they can safely collect pollen. On his journey, he will meet people on both sides of the battle lines in a country torn by war and chaos.
