Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This quiet Soviet drama offers an in-depth, realistic look at the attempts of two old-flames who reunite to see if they were meant to be together; the effort teaches them plenty about the true nature of love. Both Sasha and Ilya are in their thirties; long ago they were lovers, but gradually became friends after pursuing other paths. Ilya is involved in a loveless marriage and has a couple kids, while Sasha went through several lovers without finding one that lasted. One day the two meet again. Immediately, the old sparks begin to fly and they decide this time they will fully explore their potential relationship and so take off to a remote Northern cabin to be alone.
