My Love (18+)

Russia, Kazakhstan, 2018, colour, 41 min.
Director: Zaka Abdrakhmanova
True Kazakh girls don’t marry Russian men. That is what Grandma Zeynegul believes. But her favorite granddaughter goes against her will. Many years on, she returns to Kazakhstan. Her mother is drinking, Grandma is praying, and her father remarried, yet she longs for a family photo – just as the one from childhood. The photo of her beloved and hated family.
