A story of a young woman whose soul remembers the metaphysical perfection it witnessed before becoming embodied. Now, against the canvas of the modern world it seems like a film defect.

Set in the turbulent, harsh social reality of contemporary Russia...the filmmaker studies her characters and their painful existence in a manner that carries metaphysical resonance.
My story is about the “metaphysical space” we live in, which is far deeper than the world we see around us. It’s about how people have always, and still do, search for themselves in this space.
Born in Gorki – now Nizhny Novgorod – in the Soviet Union in 1978, Natalya studied acting at the Nizhegorodsky Theatre School before taking a Directing Course with Anatoly Vasiliev at the School of Dramatic Art in Moscow.
