Synopsis

The film is composed of episodes of life in Moscow and in other parts of the country. Because of their absurdity, these episodes are as much realistic as they are unimaginable. Three characters happen to meet in an anonymous bar. We learn from their conversations the intriguing and banal details of their lives. But are they both telling the truth? It's only later on, when the three separate, that more hints about these strangers are revealed. The film plays with subjects such as social and political changes in Russia, its countryside and its present-day citizens surviving all in their own way.
