Kiev Moscow

Renata lives in Kyiv with her mother. Her younger brother, Kiril, is fighting in the war in the east of Ukraine.
At the advertising firm where Renata works, she is assigned to take care of Sasha, a Russian skateboarder who comes from Moscow to perform tricks for a commercial. Renata loses the money for Sasha’s hotel, and is forced to host him in her brother’s room.
In the course of a day Sasha and Renata become very close, but external circumstances – her mother’s struggle to make peace with the fact that a Russian boy is living in her son’s room and general frustrations with the war - don’t allow them to keep their friendship.
