Plot synopsis
A decade in Russia as seen through the prism of the director's personal story dedicated to her first love and loss.
Marusya and Kimi are inseparable lovers coming-of-age as Russia’s nationalistic dreams take hold. Turning Marusya’s camera on themselves, the two capture the euphoric anxiety of their youth, burning the candle at both ends -- but as one light burns brighter, the other may be extinguished forever. A message from a silenced generation.
