During the Colombian Civil War, human rights activist Ruby defended the rights of the poorest Colombians. But when the situation in her country stabilized, the protagonists of the documentary A Colombian Family faced a choice: to continue to fight or return to a quiet life.

The protagonists of this conversation, but already in the Ukrainian context, faced a similar choice: to live a quiet life or start changing themselves, their city, and their country. The protagonists of this conversation will tell how activism turned into a lifework, how it changed them, and why they decided, each in his/her field, not to wait for the country to change itself, but to take control of the situation.
