Lana Gogoberidze tells an explicitly autobiographical story about the interwoven fates of a mother and a daughter who both have to cope with their lives alone under the most difficult of circumstances. While the mother has been sent into exile in Siberia, the orphaned child Anna seeks refuge in her old home, which is now inhabited by a secret policeman. Anna encounters the intruder in the private rooms with her fear, but also with joie de vivre, vacillating between loyalty to principle and occasional compassion.
