NO OBVIOUS SIGNS
“No obvious signs” is the phrase Ukrainian soldiers hear in hospitals where they come with physiological traumas and need of help. But until their bodies have no injuries, doctors and society don’t notice their problems. What is left backstage of the heroic videos of the warriors in Ukraine? What do they have to face, one on one, in peaceful life, and where does the war stop?
This is the story of the woman soldier, Oksana Yakubova, who returns from war. Talking to psychologists, battling her PTSD and panic attacks, she tries hard to return to normal life. The documentary shows her path from the beginning of her rehabilitation process till her way to normal family life and work. You could support Oksana and transfer money to her. Her sincere desire was to help veterans return to civilian life. All funds that you transfer to Oksana will go to the rehabilitation of veterans.
