Synopsis: Russia, home of world-famous thinkers, poets and artists. Russia, battlefield of war, dictatorship and revolutions. 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the great revolution, but what is going on there now?
Acclaimed filmmaker, Katja Fedulova (Berlinale Talent 2014), left Russia aged 18, over 20 years ago. But the homeland for which her grandmother fought continues to haunt her. She returns home with one big question: Are there still heroines in Putin’s Russia?
She finds three young, beautiful women, each fighting for their own vision of what their country should be. Their struggle offers a complex picture of modern Russian - full of dramatic, desperate, absurd and even funny moments.
With every unexpected revelation, the façade crumbles to show the corruption and fragility of a country still struggling with the aftermath of perestroika. Sometimes heartbreaking and always full of open ambivalence, this film is a beguiling, dizzying glimpse into modern Russia.
