Synopsis

On April Fool's Day, 1989, a man crossing the road was hit by a car and thrown high in the air. Landing on his head and side, Leonid Loktev immediately became a different person, "an impenetrable being, stuck between life and death." Filmmaker Julia Loktev shows how she and her family--Russian immigrants marooned in Loveland, Colorado--confront a world that was changed forever when her father was left physically and mentally impaired.
