Lena is crushed by her husband’s possible infidelity and decides to pay him back in his own coin. It doesn’t take long before the situation is out of control, and her revenge is beginning to cost her dearly.

“The suffering comes at the end", Sergei explains about his new play. For his wife, Lena, the suffering starts from the beginning. She finds a suspicious text message from another woman on Sergei’s phone, and her life starts to fall apart. Instead of confronting her husband, she decides to restore balance her own way. She embarks on sexual encounters with random strangers, in an increasingly intricate game. Even as she is undeniably losing control, she cannot seem to stop.

In this Russian drama we see Lena’s sexual awakening after having been in a passionless relationship for too long. Evgeniya Gromova plays Lena with subtle nuance, hinting at the underlying psychological drama happening on her erotic journey. This is a film subtly talking about emancipation, gender roles, power, and the necessity of good communication in relationships.
