Documentary Love in the cold: after 20 years in Berlin, Olga, mid-30s, single, travels to her home village in Siberia. Here, the roles of man and woman are the same as they have been for centuries: he's the boss and brings in the money, she bears children and takes care of the household. Romance makes up only a small part of the arrangement. With her big city life and lack of husband and children, Olga is the target of much shaking of heads and tart remarks. That's supposed to be happiness? Impossible! Full of warmth and humour, the film allows both world views to collide, while portraying the Siberian environment in all its magic as the seasons change.
