“Director Roman Bondarchuk’s first dramatic feature is a mix of Kafka-esque road movie and contemporary western, rich in sumptuous visuals and lyrical strangeness.” –Hollywood Reporter

A series of misfortunes leaves Lukas, an interpreter on a tour of military checkpoints, stranded near a small southern Ukrainian town in a lawless universe beyond his imagination. With nowhere to turn, this city slicker finds shelter at the home of a colorful local. Visually rich and strange, Volcano evokes Alice In Wonderland by way of Kafka, spiked with elements of a contemporary Western.
