Irina, a smart, attractive and independent woman in her late thirties, in love with Kostik, 10 years younger, decide to leave Moscow in her expensive car to vacation in a small fi shing village on the Crimea, where Kostik spent holidays when he was young.
People in this village live somewhere between the Soviet past and the Ukrainian present, often by breaking the law. The Muscovites fi nd this a somewhat unfamiliar situation, but Kostik is seduced by local “wild girl” girl, Katya, who was in love with him when she was young, 10 years ago. But now, Katya has another, the local Lothario, however, who isn’t about to lose her to this interloper from the big city. Katya has a solution…A meditation on changes in Russia since the fall of communism. A multi-prizewinner.
Valery Pendrakovsky, 57, formerly head of Yalta Studios, is a veteran of Russian and Ukrainian fi lm production for the past 25 years. He will be joined here by his scriptwriter wife, Anna Pendrakovskaya.
