“War Mothers” is the story of three women: Halyna, Svitlana, and Yulia. They live in the town of Zaporizhia, which is along the eastern front of the ongoing war in Ukraine. All three women are mothers, all three have felt the impacts of the war first hand, and all three have decided not to settle for the tragedy being dealt to themselves, to their country and it’s people. They are mothers of war, they are War Mothers.
