Plot synopsis
Nastya lives in Yekaterinburg and dreams of becoming the world’s most famous female comedian. But for now she has an audience of just one – her mother, on whom Nastya tries out her jokes every day. Anarbek quits his job at the market and moves to Moscow to become a successful standup comedian, renting a flat on the edge of the city. The tired parents of these dreamers advise them to find a job, but their ambitious offspring continue to build wobbly castles in the air.
