A tough but tender portrait of urban squalor, from the award-winning Siberian-born author of Plasticine.

Dima, 19, lives with his alcoholic father. The night before he leaves for the war in Chechnya to do his national service, he throws a party. Lera, 20, lives in the same block. She’s convinced that she’ll win a fortune if only she can borrow enough money for a lottery ticket. Lera’s cousin Yulka, 18, is more interested in seeing just how far Dima will go to prove his devotion to her.
