SISTERS OF UKRAINE
Two volunteers from Barcelona travel to a convent in western Ukraine where nuns are aiding refugees following the Russian invasion. As the missile attacks on all of Ukraine surge to unprecedented levels following the bombing of the Kerch Bridge in Crimea, the nuns and volunteers take a group of three-dozen refugees and families of soldiers fighting in the war on a three-day journey across Europe to housing near Barcelona.
