SYNOPSIS

Russia 2017. The world could be on the verge of a great war. People are anxious that things could fall apart. Evolving around an unfinished building, a diverse group of outsiders struggle to find their place in this rapidly changing society, making up the mosaic of existence that is life itself…

A Kyrgyz construction worker arrives in Russia, finding himself almost on a different planet due to language problems and prejudice. His problems worsen when he discovers that the construction site has been shut down…

A brother and sister return from abroad to inherit their deceased father’s large estate. They have no plans to remain and complete their adored father’s ambitious architectural project. They are rejected by his close friends and they are pressured about the unfinished building…

A real estate lawyer and his haunting dreams about the past begin to push away the present, as if he is living some other life, not his own…

A museum guide has been working on the same art dissertation for years. His museum is now in danger of closing due to the progressive new building under construction. He must choose whether to protect his museum or move on…

A war refugee who lost his entire family attempts to save a young girl held hostage near the abandoned construction site…

The 40-something architect of that unfinished building simply refuses to grow up. When he falls in love with a woman many years younger, he tries to find a common language. Soviet Russia is still a part of him, but for her those were medieval times.

From the acclaimed director of PAPER SOLDIER… With sophisticated visuals and wit, writer-director Alexey German Jr. boldly pursues his exploration of Russian culture and politics by reaching deep into the soul of the human spirit.
