In this present time urban drama two friends without address and a young country woman meeting at a train station in Moscow struggle to survive relying on mutual trust. The story supporting true humanity is told through authentic acting and images full of atmosphere originating in the best tradition of Russian film art. The audience is infected by the remarkable solidarity of the characters, their courage to face life and their unshakeable belief in a better future.

After the sudden death of her beloved grandmother a nine year old girl with a mentally ill mother searches for security in her family. Told from the perspective of children the entertaining and unconventional film succeeds in raising attention for existential problems in post-modern societies. Relying on a self-confident and strong girl as central character the film sets prejudices overcome, responsibility accepted, dialogue between the generations and even death met witout taboo against growing isolation and shows an optimistic model of new family relations.
