In the Siberian countryside, marriage is traditionally seen as the greatest achievable happiness for a woman. But the 80year old Dorotchka, has always remained alone. At the kitchen table, she contemplates life, love, regret and loneliness—has she maybe brought this fate upon herself? The film is a spinoff of a film that screened previously at IDFA, Siberian Love, in which filmmaker Olga Delane explored the same views on love and marriage. Wringing her hands at the kitchen table, Dorotchka speaks in short sentences peppered with expletives, making it clear that even women like her have their hearts broken.
