Plot synopsis
The life of the 30-year-old Nastya is divided into two parts: the world of constant tension in the megapolis (stress at work, conflict with the mother, and fading emotions for her beloved) threatens her peace of mind and her mental balance. But Nastya also takes a great interest in riding. The internal conflict sharpens and the contradictions are obvious, but Nastya prefers to not notice them, running away from her problems to the stable. Until “that day” arrives, which brings a dramatic turn of events, leading to an understanding that you cannot live in two worlds, but you have to make a choice.
