Ordinary Film

Обычное кино

“Ordinary film” is a love story drama about two women of different age and social status who love one man. This is a highly emotional story of ordinary love, pain, anger and passion, but our main characters – Olya, Tanya and Denis, their beloved one, – are not that ordinary. They live in a small Belarusian town and visit a social center to spend their leisure time and generally life time.
Tanya is 39 years old, she has Down’s syndrome, Olya is 17, and she has epilepsy. Denis is 26, he has lost short-term memory due to a head injury in childhood. They have very light versions of pathologies, but in Belarus disabled people are absolutely excluded from social life. The girls can’t find a job and get good education. They studied in specialized schools, but haven’t even been taught to count.
It is a story about difficulty and even impossibility to find a place in the post-soviet society for a woman and especially a woman with disability. Thus their intentions for love and establishing a family become their only possible way for personal realization. And the only possible way out of disability.
