Lichk, Armenia. Life without men

In the streets of Lichk, an Armenian village, one meet mothers, daughters, sisters. But almost no men. To escape poverty, 90% of them exile themselves in Russia during eight or nine months, in search of work. They are farmers worker, drivers but also banker, students, school director, musical director and there they work as builders. Leaving Lichk's women carrying out alone the tough lives of family, between loneliness and waiting.
