An elderly Russian lady shares her apartment with her niece and four children. In a crammed flat, the calm she once enjoyed, as well as her fine family keepsakes, are constantly threatened by the children’s explorative energy. Forced into cohabitation, these two lifestyles could not be more different. Will this family manage to make room for each other in their hearts? This intimate, immersive documentary is a chamber drama with a strong resonance. The filmmaker plunges herself into this microcosm, finding just the right distance to film these colliding worlds with dignity and attention.
