Russia, 2005
Avant-Garde, Drama


Midnight, Moscow. Three strangers gather at a seedy bar. Each of them has their own strange story to tell. As the trio gets acquainted it becomes unclear whose story is true and whose is false. Soon the stories fall away and the film turns into the most surreal, haunting story of them all.
