Karalina left Belarus, just like the overwhelming majority of her friends from music school. The lives of Belarussian intelligentsia members are portrayed in the form of a study of nostalgia –longing for their families, friends and the childhood they remember in idyllic colours. President Lukashenka declares on public television that there is a bright future ahead of the graduates of Belarussian schools, but the picture of the provinces seems to contradict this optimistic diagnosis. The only comfort is brought by a delivery truck with food, matches and vodka.
