After the death of their mother, two brothers and their young sister are expelled from the family apartment, mortgaged by the elder son. They still own a bit of land and decide to settle on it. Unfortunately they have just a few days to build a house on the terrain, or else they'll lose their ownership rights...
With this second film that he wrote, edited, and filmed himself, and that was selected in the competitions at Wiesbaden and Edinburgh festivals, Yerzhanov confirms his talent and builds a world that he never ceases to reinvent and feed with the same obsessions. A scathing critique of the excesses and failures of a corrupt administration.
