Closer than appear
"Closer than appear" movie is an increadiable diving into the real life of ordinary people in modern Russia. Be ready to meet our heroes from different ends of a great country looking for true happiness. Six-year-old Kolya Pykhtin arrives to the Moscow city for a music competition. But his real goal is not to win, but to find his father, whom he has never seen.
Senya Korablev discovers that there is a passage in the basement of the orphanagethat that leads to another reality: to the deserted sea coast. Eight-year-old Sasha avoids her "new" dad, intrigues him. But everything changed by the common thing - they have to prepare a layout for mom's presentation, otherwise she will lose her job. Georgy lives in a small village in the Caucasus and can't tell to neighbors that his daughter ran away with a boyfriend. It seems to him as a big shame. So, he comes up with a story that his daughter "went to study at Moscow University."
