Director: Armen Khachatryan
Three fates, three characters with their lives, lived or not, full of love and treasons, joy and sorrows, solitude and happiness. One of them lived her whole life among the stars, and she has never thought of getting a family or children; the other lives through the school she’d created and wishes to become a mother herself; the third, being a prostitute, believes she can also find her happiness.
