Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez
Set in Leningrad, Russia (now known as Saint Petersburg), the worst of World War II is over. The city is in ruins and those that survived are shadows of their former selves. Iya (Viktoria Miroshnichenko) and Masha (Vasilisa Perelygina) are among the lucky few to make it, but surviving in the tatters of this once great city will take grit determination and a hope that disappeared long ago. Directed and co-written by Kantemir Balagov.
