"Pit-hole" is a story about an unusual Kiev family fighting against real estate lawlessness. Nataliya, the head of the family, is trying to preserve the family village house, now surrounded by modern living quarters. Besides that she has to take care of her four children, two husbands and a little herd of mischievous goats. Will Nataliya manage to keep the family life style and privatize the land or will they be kicked out for superior reasons? Is Ukraine really a democratic country?
