A couple with problems invites friends to a poker game. A friendly party threatens to turn into a loud quarrel. Every next word hurts more painfully, and it seems that the guests are also not averse to taking part in this little apocalypse.
- New Harvest Film Festival (2021, Russia, Moscow)
This film is my study of dying relationships, of coldness and alienation, which leaves no place for humanity in a relationship; yet in this relationship the need for a the other person remains. Although the idea for the film appeared earlier, and the filming took place during my studies at the Moscow Film School, I was inspired and driven to complete this work by the isolation in 2020, which many couples did not survive.
