Bold war satire: Moldova in the 90s. Between absurd comedy, corrupt politicians and a lot of rakia, Vasea and Duma discover an unknown, charred corpse to which they want to pay their last respects.

In 1992, little Moldova sinks into the chaos as a consequence of the Transnistrian War. Between the ruins of the Soviet Union, tractor driver Dima is looking for a piece of happiness and Afghanistan veteran Vasea is looking for peace. Their paths cross when they find a charred corpse and decide to give her a proper send-off. Their bizarre venture takes them through a world full of crooked politicians, greedy priests and shady KGB agents. A sophisticated mixture of dramatic farce and satirical comedy that takes us on an adventurous journey through the turmoil of war and makes us reflect on the nature of humanity. In the wildness of embattled Moldavia, Borş not only lets us laugh at the bizarre theater of life, but also celebrates the small victories of humanity in a world gone out of control.
