Plot synopsis
A mother of four children puzzles about love. One thing is clear: She needs sex. She also knows: So many allegedly happy couples hold on to their mutual error. It’s more honest to get a divorce. The Russian original title means “age of transition”. And that can hit you in every phase of life. The teenagers discuss with their mother what strategies can be used to face it. The experienced midwife, in all frankness, chooses her own path to happiness.
