    • Synopsis
    • Many stories have been told about the military. Storytellers from David Lean to Francis Coppola have taken a curious audience behind the scenes of this otherwise elusive world. There is a point of view in its long history, though, that has rarely been portrayed. It is the story of military families. Maria lives on the military base together with her husband Nikolay, the deputy commander, and their son. She desperately anticipates her husband’s transfer back to Russia, dreaming of a life where she and her family will have their own home. Here, having just one bedroom to themselves, the family has no privacy, to Maria it seems, as if everything she does is being monitored by the others under a magnifying glass. Their son is part of the judo team and coached by Captain Krainov who is strikingly different from Nikolay. Nikolay treats their son just like another soldier. Without realizing what Maria has gotten herself into she becomes engulfed in an emotional storm. The confined and enclosed world of the military base proves that it is impossible to hide anything and quickly not just Maria’s life but the whole community is falling apart.
