Plot synopsis
Odessa, 1958. The mistress of a small brothel is a real beauty with a strong personality, a character who is at once deep and tragicomic.
Mum Liuba quits her job. Her future is to become the wife of a sea captain and to spend the best years of her life quietly and without worries. Instead of the well-off captain, Liuba chooses the fragile poet and soothsayer Adam. The plan for her personal life changes suddenly. As Mum Liuba says, “a shame for people, especially everybody”.
