1976. The Soviet Union. Masha is unhappy. Her husband is dull, her lover’s wife is mentally ill and she’s given herself a bad haircut. Masha and her two sisters long to go to Moscow but are trapped in a Soviet backwater, smoking, watching the Montreal Olympics and listening to David Bowie’s latest album. She doesn’t think anyone notices her but what she doesn’t know is that she’s being watched…
