35 year-old Asia is a Russian immigrant struggling to make ends-meet. Her biggest concern though is for her teenage daughter, Vika, who has been diagnosed with an incurable disease. When Vika’s health starts deteriorating, Asia tries her best at fulfilling her dying daughter's last wishes; even when it means helping her lose her virginity. But before Asia can become Vika's friend she needs to accept her role as a mother
Dealing with a personal grief made me question the presence of death in my life. Only through my art I was able to enter my biggest fears - dealing with pain, grief and separation. I believe that even under the shadow of death there's still beauty, there's life.
