Plot synopsis
A refrigerator truck with naked bodies of four females is found on the border of Finland. Each of the girls share the same neck tattoo that resembles a house. The identities of the the girls are yet to be found. Three years later, the police arrest Valeria Mazyane, an orphaned girl and a recent Islam convert who lives in Moscow in a Kyrgyz immigrant community. The police believe she killed her husband’s brother. It turns out that Valeria is not an orphan after all, and her past is as mysterious as the man’s murder. And under her wedding hijab, there’s a familiar house tattoo.

commentaries
 
Russian pair, Valery Fedorovich and Evgeny Nikishov likely feature among the most active TV series’ producers of the moment. Together, they have produced several series per year, while maintaining high quality standards at all times. Identification, one of their latest productions, is a perfect example of that. A beautiful mixture of sensational images and atypical sounds, this delightful series presents the portrait of a Kyrgyz community in Russia that finds itself turned upside down following an encounter.
