Come play with me. Dmitry, who enjoys success in business matters, struggles to get on top of his emotional life. Chance sends him from fling to fling. During a business trip in Odessa he becomes involved with the daughter of an old school friend, who happens to be celebrating her 17th birthday.

Back in Moscow, the daily grind between work and skype calls with the parents continues. While Dmitry’s school-friend is on holidays with his wife, Dmitry approaches their daughter. He follows her while she jogs and witnesses an attempted rape, where he also becomes a victim. The resulting wounds of the stabbing draws him into the acquaintance of another woman.

In his fourth feature film Mikhail Segal illustrates, with his deft feel for emotional turbulence, the attempt of a seemingly successful man, to get his life under control. In the search for meaning and human contact Dmitry plays the same, futile, game. Featuring masterly cinematography and comical, but also profound dialogue Segal presents the audience with three episodes in Dmitry’s life. MM
