Synopsis:

This powerful drama from Cannes winner Andrey Zvyagintsev (THE RETURN) begins in a dilapidated port on the Barents Sea, where Nikolai, a hard-drinking mechanic, and his family, are under threat of losing their home, which the mayor wants to bulldoze and replace with a fancy dacha. Hope emerges when a handsome ex-army pal turned lawyer arrives to aid their cause and in the process expose the mayor’s extensive corruption. Things take several unexpected turns, but this being a Zvyagintsev film, the family’s struggle against a poisoned bureaucracy ultimately testifies to the power of perseverance and determination.
