Plot synopsis
An amateur women’s choir from the provincial Russian town of Tikhvin rehearses songs from Verdi's Aida. During the daytime, these women lead ordinary lives, working in shops, removing the garbage, loading goods on trucks, overcoming illnesses; but in the evenings, they form part of an absolutely different world. Their lives are filled with dreams and expectations for something. An amateur women’s choir from the provincial Russian town of Tikhvin rehearses songs from Verdi's Aida.
