Mukha is the nickname of Vera Mukhina, a 16-year old schoolgirl from a small Russian town. She has lived alone since her mother died, taken up boxing, and never asked anyone for help. She is not one to forgive other people’s mistakes. One day a man comes into her life and tells her that he is her father. Fyodor Mukhin, a truck-driver, opens the door with his own key, leaves his toothbrush in the bathroom, and starts living in her house. So her father did not get burned alive in a tank, as her mother had used to say. He had just failed to show up before. It’s enough for Mukha to declare war on him.
