In Detail

In today’s Russia, children are returned to orphanages – even after long periods with foster families – and replaced ‘like defective goods or unwanted puppies’.

Based on the director’s own research, this subversive insight into life at a certain level of society, where the wealthy and empowered can circumvent the law and violate with ease universally accepted social mores, also takes aim at the medical profession and the judiciary. The amazing final five minutes has echoes of the end of ‘Oh What a Lovely War’.
