Emotionally intense and stunningly beautiful Ukrainian coming of age story set against the backdrop of a family's and the Soviet Union's parallel collapse, to the tune of Bananarama.

17-year-old Kira is growing up in a well-off cultural family and planning a future as an actress. It's 1990, and her adult life is about to take off when she makes a discovery that shatters the image of her beloved director father and sends her own family down the same path as the collapsing Soviet Union. Tonia Noyabrova's partially autobiographical film is a meticulous study of an era, filled with period-specific details and environments. With all the emotions coursing through a lost young woman leaving childhood behind but also leaving behind everything she took for granted. That Karyna Khymchuk is a discovery in the role of Kira is evident from the very opening scene of the film, perfectly accompanied by Bananarama's superhit "Venus."
