Daniel (Ninidze) is an idealistic medic assigned to care for the health of the first Soviet cosmonaut troop. His concerns over the safety and morality of the project mesh with doubts about his own personal choices, as he enters a troubled extra-marital affair with the lovely Vera (Sheveleva). Eloquent, compelling and beautifully shot, this is a thoroughly absorbing work from the director of 'The Last Train' (EIFF 2004). 'Part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival'.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
