Synopsis

Moscow, 1992. Katia is a 34-year-old typist. She leads a somewhat boring life with her husband, Mitia, who is rather insignifiant and still very much under the influence of his mother, the famous writer Irina Dmitrievna. Their monotonous life is shared between an apartment in a district of Moscow and a datcha, where they go every summer. At the datcha, Katia’s life is suddenly transformed by her meeting with Sergueï, who becomes her lover. This passion will completely transform her personality…
