Director Statement

The film is set in the dystopian period of the decade following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in a world where harsh realism has replaced optimism and hopes for the new beautiful world to evolve. We likewise observe our heroine, Molly, change from cold and stern to caring and emotional--not only because of her physical state, but also due to a collective state of heightened self-awareness. As she realizes she has a new life inside of her, she feels the need to escape. However, it is impossible to escape the jail you are building, you can only destroy it.
