Vasily Sigarev's second feature, after his acclaimed Wolfy, is an existential portrait of protagonists living in a wintry Russian province. A mother wants to reunite with her twin daughters. A young couple marry in church, but immediately after the ceremony, God - or maybe the Devil, or maybe Blind Fate - tests their love in the most brutal way. A boy wants to see his estranged father, despite his mother's violent protests. Each of these characters lives through their own ordeal.
