This is a film about my mother – movie actress Nina Antonova. About a hundred roles – big and small. She was recognized by the public, she was a celebrity. This is a very personal story. Funny and sad. About the diluted identity overshadowed by a man, her filmmaker-husband, my father… About my family where life and films were inseparable, and where those involved often mistook the alternate reality for real life. About dependency and newfound freedom…About the change of fate… About new roles, and new hopes…
