This incredibly moving film tells the story of a poverty stricken
Russian teen who is abandoned by her mother, leaving her in
the care of a conniving aunt. Circumstances force Lilya to
move out of the house and into shabby quarters nearby.
When Lilya’s schoolmates start to spread lies about her,
her only source of comfort is a street kid with whom
she builds a fraternal relationship. Lilya proves
an easy mark for a local pimp who promises her a
life of prosperity. (35mm presentation)
Russian and Swedish languages with English subtitles.
