Lekha is 26 years old. He lives in a shelter for homeless people. This isn’t the place where people have daily help with documents and jobs. This is an absolutely homeless house in Kostroma. People stay here for years and some of them can end lives there. Of course, it’s better to die where it’s warm.
Lekha remained faithful to his ex-wife, unfortunately, she broke up with him. Well, how did she leave? She offered to be friends, but he didn’t get this joke.
Lekha suffers from a break with his wife, so he decides to record a rap. Maybe, the ex-wife has heard his music and acknowledged whom she lost, what mistakes she made.

The homeless shelter is located in my neighborhood in the city where I was born.. My parents always talked about homeless people - If you are bad at school, you will live like them.
This is a very personal film for me. This film opened my eyes, where I closed them. It doesn't matter to me where you live if we have the same problems.
