Synopsis

Deftly mixing social realism with flights of outright fantasy, first-time writer/director and bold new voice of Ukranian cinema Marysia Nikitiuk crafts a fable of crime, murder and growing up. Set in rural Ukraine, Nikitiuk’s debut follows a young girl and her rebellious teenage cousin in love with a young criminal, who is forced to flee after a murder. As their town spirals into a cycle of grim violence, the girl drifts away into a visionary daydream of surreal imagery, and the film boldly dances between the bleak and the fantastic.
