An ironical melodrama about the contemporary Moscow middle class. Each of the characters has a personal secret that is hidden from the world: an “intimate part”. The protagonist is the scandalous photo-artist Ivan, who positions himself against the rest of the world. He is convinced that people are born for happiness, and happiness is the freedom to be oneself. But how safe is it to set that “self” free?
