Anya, an aloof graduate student, is on the run from the police when she meets young Kristina, a precocious orphan determined to find the only family she has left. The pair embark on an unpredictable odyssey hitchhiking across the epic landscapes of Russia and its neighbouring countries.

Our take

A drama of youthful flight that transforms into an unlikely road movie about friendship, I Won’t Come Back is a story of female companionship formed across a remarkable landscape: Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. Polina Pushkaruk’s stunning performance, as Anya, marks her as an actress to follow.
