Licking Knives

Exploring the themes of identity and self-determination, Licking Knives is a darkly funny story told by a confident, confused, indignant young woman who decides to leave home in the spring of 1939. It is a journey that will take you across Europe from a stick in the Ukrainian mud to the City of Lights.

“Ukrainian people are convinced that everything will turn out shit because it always has. And they are always right.” – from Licking Knives
