Russia in 2017. The world could be on the verge of a great war. People are anxious that things could fall apart. Wandering around an unfinished building, a diverse group of outsiders struggle to find their place in this rapidly changing society, making up the mosaic of existence that is life itself... Alexey German Jr. shares his view of Russian culture and politics by reaching deep into the human soul.
