Plot synopsis
Drama.
Two sisters, having buried their mother, are travelling to Moscow in search of their father, who abandoned them fifteen years ago, when one of them was six years old and the other hardly accomplished one. Accidently, in a journal they come across an interview with their father – a successful businessman, happily living with his new family and adoring his little daughter. Deprived of happiness and love, the sisters decide to render him an account and make a desperate shift…
“Compensation” is a story about the requital that each of us this way or another has to make for ill things that we have done to others or for deprived share of our love. The further it gets, the harder the compensation”, says Vera Storozheva, the director.
