SUNSET

Scriptwriter and director – Andrei Annenski

Lyudmila is a successful estate agent in the Russian capital. Her memories of the past gradually show the audience how a single mother from a small provincial town managed not only to survive but also to settle down in prosperous Moscow. Lyudmila’s story is fairly typical. In fact, like in a mirror, it reflects the realities of modern life, which forces us to make difficult choices. Should we betray ourselves for the sake of material comfort? Is it possible to succeed in city life and remain honest? Could the betrayal of one’s own ideals result in the decline of genuine values?
