Russia. 2020. 77 '. Fiction. VOSTF.
Director, screenplay and editing: Viatcheslav Kopturevskiy
With: Ilya Shubochkin, Viatcheslav Kopturevskiy, Anastasiya Voskresenskaya.

Meek, a farm boy, has a strained relationship with Dima, a policeman. For each other, they are brothers-in-law and secretly lovers ... During their trip to Siberia to visit Sasha's grandmother, buried truths come to light, calling into question the fragile balance that 'they had managed to maintain until then, to the point of tipping their relationship towards a dangerous precipice.

Because of its immense wild and deserted expanse, Siberia is the only place where Meek and Dima, two underground lovers, can truly be themselves, spend their days hiking or sleep in the arms of one of the other. With the desire to evoke both the landscapes of Brokeback Mountain and the tragic novels of Dostoyevsky, Viatcheslav Kopturevskiy signs a poignant drama, sublimely photographed and interpreted, which beyond its passionate history, reveals latent homophobia and repression which reign in deep Russia.
