Poetic portrait of a Ukrainian woman working four jobs in a state of complete solitude in a nearly abandoned post-industrial city.
“The film is inspired by an eponymous short story by Mari-Dari published in Ukrainian magazine Chetver. The literary source starts with the images of a woman wandering around the streets at night and inspecting the traffic signs along the way as if searching for guidance in her own life… The existence of the heroine is aimed at preserving her essence by avoiding the paradigms imposed by society and concentrating instead on the world beyond the material dimension. (N. Ilchuk)
