Script by Anna Yablonskaya (written for a stage play). It is trying to figure out some difficult matters on religion and beliefs with a non-extremist but still very free approach. The action takes place in a Russian flat where lives one standard non-religious family, starting with a sudden arrival of an Orthodox Christian grandma; a drama of a teenager with broken heart comes out as the girl protests the blind belief in a God’s miracle. A spectator is being immersed in an authentic way of one family’s life which is interrupted by mystic happenings and it all finally ends up in a mass insanity.
