Short Film Profile


It is the white nights of the northern Russian summer, a time of neither night nor day. A woman searches the streets of St. Petersburg for her missing daughter while coping with the indifference and ineptitude of a destitute bureaucracy. Another child appears, an urchin who provides a fleeting moment of emotional respite. A second tragedy emboldens the woman to make a critical choice.
