A fragile love story between a boy and a girl in today’s post-revolutionary Ukraine. Anton, a former enfant prodige composer who couldn’t handle his obsession with music, returns to Ukraine after a long period in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Katia, an ordinary girl living on the outskirts of Kiev, is planning to move to Berlin with her boyfriend, a German photographer. Two bewildered, lost young people who meet at a crucial point in their lives for a few days of happiness together in a shattered society in search of a new national identity.
