St. Petersburg, city of dreamers: in an inn lives Dzhus, a young Kazakh who dreams of a better life. At the city’s Municipal Affairs, Anna, a tough woman, makes her employees work to the bone but dreams of retiring. Dina, the xenophobic girl, is a young streetcar driver who dreams of taking power. Nikita, the young boy urban climber who travels the city’s rooftops as a tour guide, dreams of success.
As we follow these characters over the course of a year and seven popular holidays, the authoritarian control of the Kremlin weighs on all of them, leaving little room for dreams.
