“You are a cockroach, Tati. You will survive the hunger, the cold, fever and this war.”

In the wreckage of an old apartment block, four orphans are compelled to join forces to survive the murderous Leningrad blockade. Through a cruel winter, enemy shelling and gnawing hunger, Leah, Zoya, Tati and Kub fantasise of escape on the only road out of the city – the ice road.

Every night, whilst the city freezes and the bombs rain down, Leah mysteriously leaves the others for several hours. She will not tell them where she goes and they daren’t ask – the food she brings back is the only thing keeping them alive.

But then as winter bites hard, the youngest, Kub goes missing…

Harnessing Russian folklore and historical witness accounts, Ice Road fuses performance, creative technology, original music, film and aroma to tell the story of the children war leaves behind.
