Synopsis

Director Ivan I. Tverdovskiy will be in attendance!

As in his previous film Zoology the inimitable Ivan I. Tverdovskiy examines the life of a lonely individual who has been unable to fully integrate himself into society. The director criticises its warped system through the fate of fragile Denis, whom young Oksana put in a baby box when he was an infant. Sixteen years later she steals him away from a children’s home, intent on making amends for her maternal neglect. Denis, however, has no idea of the heavy price to be paid for his mother’s favour: the boy has one unusual quality which luxury-loving Oksana has no qualms about exploiting. With its focused narrative, Tverdovskiy’s drama encourages a metaphorical interpretation and offers a thought-provoking meditation on the ethos of Russian society.
