An original portrait of young people in Russia, who received cameras from the directors and help in filming their own life stories. A mosaic of everyday situations with unexpected camera angles revealing characters’ ordinary but also hidden lives. The result is a fascinating melodramatic story using the dynamics and language of YouTube.
