A road movie set in a city, about the distance between a mother and her daughter. Lucia and her five-year-old daughter Marussia, immigrants from Russia, are always on the move, from one housing project to another, from one man to the next, looking for a place to spend the night, a place to call home, running away from each other and finally finding each other again…
This drama is about the relationship between a daughter and a mother in which the roles constantly reverse, revealing the daughter’s maternal feelings toward her mother, and the mother’s filial—immature and irresponsible—affection toward her daughter. The tale of the Russian Cinderella ends here: salvation doesn’t come in the form of Prince Charming and a better life, it comes as ordinary happiness in the tender moments the daughter and mother share together.
