MH17: A Nation's Grief

In the summer of 2014, the Netherlands received the devastating news that a plane that had departed from Amsterdam was shot down in Ukraine. There were no survivors: two hundred Dutch people were killed. Following the tragedy of flight MH17, the nation turned to mourning, sympathizing with all people who lost a loved one that day. Seen through the eyes of three very different families, this film gives an impressive insight into the way the tragedy has affected these people personally. Director Michiel van Erp also portrays the Ukrainian villagers who witnessed dead bodies falling down in their streets, backyards and through their roofs, on the day of the crash.
