The official synopsis reads:

A man alleging to be a schoolmaster is accosted by the military at a checkpoint. Two teenagers wait for their soldier boyfriends in a dilapidated town square. A journalist is held captive and gets brutally assaulted. A young woman apologizes to an elderly couple for running over their chickens. Featuring four stories set against the backdrop of the Donbass roads during wartime, loomed by disorientation, paranoia, and terror, BAD ROADS, which challenges the very notion of truth, delivers audiences to a bleak Ukraine they’ll not soon forget.
