Under the shadow of an imminent Russian attack, a woman tries to hold her shattered life together after the father of her unborn child is killed in the Donbas by a sniper. Suddenly, her phone pings with a happy message from a friend on the other side. A wedding invitation! How will she respond?
This explosive ‘monodrama’ by leading Ukrainian writer Neda Nezhdana confronts not only the physical war between Russia and Ukraine, but the hybrid war she sees unravelling around the world. ‘Otvetka’ is a Ukrainian word that means both answers and a military retaliation.
