Film director prodigy Anton Kolomeyets’ feature-length directorial debut is a stunningly realistic tale about one young man’s transition to adulthood, filled with love, loss, disappointment, frustration and optimism.

This film depicts the forbidden love of young 17-year old Savva and his 45-year old tutor Anna, which becomes further complicated when the adolescent escapades of young Savva begin to affect the love-longing Anna.

This melodramatic film will remind viewers of their youth and the freedom of youth akin to Risky Business (Paul Brickman, 1983), but has a dark psychological message conveyed through exploring the emotional maturity of the two main characters.
