Synopsis

Tonya is a bus-driver in a village on the outskirts of Nalchik, a modest city in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria. Together with her daughter, Tonya is eagerly awaiting the return of her only son, who is fighting for a Russian private military contractor in Syria. When Tonya is told that he has been killed in action, she refuses to believe it. She is sure that there was a mistake and her son is alive. She begins a grueling public battle with the contractor and the authorities, demanding the return of her son. When it becomes obvious that all efforts to silence Tonya are fruitless, a strange young man arrives on her doorstep...

Director’s Statement

It’s hard for me to say something that can guide the viewers or that can explain the film to them. We worked really hard on this film first and foremost because we felt that the story of Tonya, her fate, and this particular period of her life is incredibly important and unfortunately relevant to us right now. And my hope is that the story of this woman, her pain will find compassion and empathy in the hearts of the audience, this would bring me true happiness. One thing I can say for sure: Tonya lives next door to you no matter what part of the world you are from.
