When the USSR broke apart in 1991, a generation of young people faced a new realm of possibilities. This intimate epic about the extraordinary lives of this last Soviet generation tells the stories of five Moscow schoolmates who were brought up behind the Iron Curtain, witnessed the joy and confusion of glasnost and reached adulthood right as the world changed around them. Through first-person testimony, verité footage and vintage home movies, the film reveals a Russia rarely seen on film.
