Director: Olga Averkieva
In their childhood, our heroes became orphans. For years, they've stayed inmates of closed psycho-neurologic shelters: Natasha – for women, Guera and Kolya – for men. Now they’ve got a chance to become self-dependent. On this path, they’ve met each other and love came into their lives.

Attention! All events of the festival times are given in Perm time (GMT+5)
