A journey through space and time: in the Siberian expanse, thousands of versts east of Moscow, on March 11, 1985. For the late Soviet Union, a new era begins with the demise of the current Kremlin, but for the residents of the small kommunalka - a communal apartment , in which many parties share the kitchen and bathroom – initially nothing changes that day. Grandmother, mother, daughter and granddaughter live in a very small space under the crumbling plaster of a bygone era. Everyone goes about their everyday lives: the engineer next door tries to sort his life into little boxes, grandmother Warwara helps a child into the world, mother Maria dreams of love, the grown-up daughter Janka wants to sing in the kitchen in the evening.
