The only outlet is an photos exhibition of stray animals, which Sasha organizes with her only friend Marina.

Violence. Violence in families. Violence against women.

These are the things that should not exist in our lives but which unfortunately exist. This is a reality that we unfortunately sometimes have to face.

This is a film about family life where cruelty has irreparable consequences.

During the dispersal, he was spoted in the camera lens, which stops his career growth. Obtaining a new title is postponed indefinitely.

Meanwhile, Sasha learns that she is pregnant.
