The Revenge of the Foxes

Moscow, during the collapse of the Soviet system: In a hospital, young people awaiting heart operations and possible death, live just for today with mischief-making and even love affairs, under the stringent gaze of the old matron, Baba Nastya. Here one of the patients, a young Turkmen, meets a Greek Comsomol boy, a Russian Stalinist with a ‘robotic’ heart, and the lovely but tragic Mary. To whom does the future belong – to the soulless robots or the poetical souls?
