Zhenya and Boris are going through a bitter divorce. They both have their future planned out and eagerly await the divorce finalization to start a new life with their new partners – Boris with his attractive and pregnant girlfriend Masha, and Zhenya with the wealthy businessman Anton. None of them show a lot of interest for their son, Alyosha, whom they see as one of the obstacles on their way to a bright new future. But then Alyosha disappears without a trace. A frantic search begins. This enigmatic tale of family pain and institutional failure won the Jury Prize at Cannes. ZFF has screened four of Zvyagintsev’s films so far (The Return, The Banishment, Elena, Leviathan), the first two of which won the festival grand prize.
