Note :
In this gentrification drama, a burnt-out private eye is hired by a fretful mother to find her young son who disappeared in the former imperial capital. The plot empowers the director to show vulnerable people displaced from their homes by slash-and burn-construction to serve Russia’s new rich. It’s a perfect theme for New York, and a wry juxtaposition of new rich and new poor in a country that once proclaimed the end of the class struggle.

Plot synopsis
A private detective in search of a missing man comes to St. Petersburg, where he had lived a very long time ago. Plunging into the past, he looks at the present, trying to make out the future.
