Plot synopsis
Natasha lives in a small village in the Ryazan region. She will soon turn 18. She has a grandmother and a very sick sister who throughout the film asks the same question "Where is Matryona?" Natasha reads her old diary where she described her life until she was 15 years old. Now, these comments sound easy and natural: first sex, her parent’s divorce and loss, a friend in bondage, meeting a new guy. At first glance, her life seems fun and carefree, but is it really so? And where is Matryona after all?
