In a film about two Russian families, Elena lives in the upmarket apartment of wealthy businessman Vladimir. Across the city in a high-rise block is Elena’s son and his family, including her grandchildren who she wants to support. Elena appears to move between two worlds in modern Russia. The re-appearance of Vladimir’s grown-up daughter, a former ‘wild child’, represents a new challenge for Elena in this moral tale.
