Synopsis

Kyrgyzstan today: Just married Alisher (18y) has to leave his pregnant wife Dildora (17y) to work in Russia, 3.500 km from home. He's one of the 12-16 million Russian guest workers, who are forced to leave their countries and work, mostly illegally, under harsh conditions in low-paid jobs in order to support their families. After eight months of hardship in Moscow, Alisher decides to return to his young family, although he has failed to earn enough money.This is a love story clouded by migration and modern slavery.
