A tender family drama about the close relationship between a mother and her adolescent son. Zinaida is divorced and has been raising Boris, an intelligent but highly selfish young man, single handedly for years. When Viktor enters Zinaida’s life, Boris is unable to accept him. Set in St. Petersburg, lifestyle, class and generational divides are explored through mother and son and their aspirations. A highly emotive and intimate portrait of a family’s reorientation; and of the changing bond between mother and child.
