Fantastic buildings of the Russian constructivist era, and three Moscow citizens who use these buidlings to pursue their big dreams. One citizen fights for the preservation of her own house and the old printing factory next door – the only preserved building by El Lissitzky. Donatas wants to live with his friends in a artist community. Vsevolod wants to preserve an architectural monument yet has to rebuild it. “Everyone who has been inside this house, is infected”, says Vsevolod. The buildings they live in or live for are more than a backdrop. They are the trigger for these fights. A film about how to deal with historic and personal utopia.
