    • Synopsis
    • There was a simple girl who lived a provincial city in Russia. She had a handycam, and she was relentlessly filming her own life: her dates, her house, her work at a stationary shop, celebrations, trips, girlfriends. Alone with herself, she called for love to come, reciting naive poems and recording herself on the camera. But when with her boyfriend, she only lectured him how to be responsible for his own life...
      Before long, the girl found another boyfriend: stable, reliable, simple. This time everything seemed to be just perfect. The girl and her new boyfriend would drive in a car and travel on a boat now. The girl was happy -- because she was smart and beautiful.
      But eventually she realized that she was instructing, contriving, resenting again. She began to nag and complain. Once in a club, they happened to meet her ex, grooving with an electric guitar. And memories of that happy Christmas with her ex came back to the girl. The girl kept going back in time.
      Because most of all she was afraid to miss out her real love...
