Renata, a high-flying producer on Russian television, is beset by a crisis of conscience.
Her son, Nikita, a superstar rapper, has gone off the rails and is now a drug addict. Renata must decide whether or not to submit him to a radical procedure called psycho-correction, in which the personality is ‘re-formatted’.
The price for Nikita? The complete rejection of his former life. The price for Renata? Every bit as high. Yuri Moroz’s dystopian portrait of a moneyed milieu, where the young no longer believe in a bright future, is extremely well rendered, with lavish photography and superior acting.
