Leaving or L(v)iving

Thousands of people are leaving Ukraine each year to escape low salaries and unemployment. Many of them are moving to neighbouring countries like Russia or Poland while others take on a long journey to work in North America. Most of them share the same goal: a better, wealthier life for themselves and their families.

This is a story about three people affected by emigration. One of them moved to New York in search of wealth and happiness. One changed continents to live with her family. And one settled in Lviv to pursue her dreams.

How do they feel about the changing face of Ukrainian society?
