Living under the same roof, the Moscow couple of Boris and Zhenya are in the terrible final stages of a bitter divorce. The insults pour down like rain in this toxic familial battle zone, always pivoting around the irresolvable and urgent matter of Alyosha's custody, their 12-year-old only son. When Boris and Zhenya finally realise that Alyosha has been missing for nearly two days, it is already too late. But is this a simple case of a runaway teenager?
