Plot synopsis
After leaving the psychiatric facility where they had been wrongfully confined, Katya and Yulia, two young Russian women whom I have been filming for many years, finally achieve independent lives. This newfound freedom, which they have fought so hard to attain, promises to make their dreams of a new future come true. But how can one be free and pursue their aspirations in today’s Russia?
