31 December. The traffi c in Moscow has come to a standstill, it is pointless
to try and rush, and help does not ease the situation. Conversations about
the infi nite trifl es that make up a life, and maybe it has already been made
up and gone. About a father who has nothing left and who can do nothing.
About the plans of a 15-year-old girl for her life, whether to become an oncologist or a food designer. About what was and what is now.
This is a fi lm without a plot, but it captures the lyricism of rushing through
life, set to Tariverdiev’s music, along with memories of happiness, of a time
when “Irony of Fate” could actually comfort and encourage and inspire hope
for the New Year and for a new life.
