DOCUMENTARY Hearts a-flutter and probing questions about the future: against a beautiful backdrop, a film about the everyday life of six teenagers in Transnistria. A year in the life of Tanya, Tolya, Alex, Sasha, Dima and Denis. They hang out together, flirt and fall in love and change locations according to the season: from a picturesque lake to snow-covered roads and deserted apartment blocks. Their home country of Transnistria is a tiny bubble where the Soviet Union has been preserved, isolated from the rest of the world and recognized by almost no other countries. This strange state structure hangs over the teens like an iron cloud: is there any point staying or should they go?
