When war besieges the unrecognized Republic of Artsakh (Karabakh), writer and photographer Lika takes cover in a bunker — and begins to write a diary. Little does she know that her words will become not only the definitive chronicle of the brutal 44-day war, but also a universal portrait of a woman who undertakes a journey of courage, creativity, and a relentless commitment to human rights.
