Synopsis

The best part of Bob’s life is already behind. Having devoted his life to cinema, he has visited a number of festivals as a movie critic, working now on a screenplay of his own. His muse and inspiration is the attractive, young and unattainable ticket seller from the movie theater across the street. But when Bob’s dream finally comes true and she visits him, a man named Dushka suddenly appears at his door. The man couldn’t choose time worse than that. Bob had met this friendly loser once at a Russian film festival, and in a reckless mood had invited him to drop by if ever in neighborhood. That was the worst thing he could have done; Dushka is not about to leave Bob, giving way to a unique tragicomedy full of unaccepted series of events to evolve.
