Plot Summary
Following the advent of glasnost and perestroika and the eventual collapse of the USSR, the childhood beliefs and ideals of many former Soviets are turned upside down. As the former Communist nation splinters and experiments with democracy and capitalism, five Russians -- married couple Lyuba and Borya, single mother Olga, struggling musician Ruslan and clothing salesman Andrei -- attempt to reconcile their newfound reality with long-held assumptions about what it meant to be Russian.
