Sasha makes her living as a professional surrogate mother. Contrary to the usual practice, she moves in with her new customers until the baby is born. She finds herself in a different world — in the house of rich government official Vadim and his wife Marina. For them, Sasha is merely a “container” – their new toy. But what was intended as a safe way of caring for the future child turns out to be a test for everyone involved. Behind the luxurious facade of the elite hides unsightly secrets. And Sasha has a secret of her own.

Maksim Sveshnikov was born in Perevalsk, USSR in 1985. Graduated from Academy of Personnel Management, Kyiv. Writer and director. Among his directing works are animated «Sapsan» (2012), «The Snow Queen» (2012) live-action features «Paws, Bones & Rock’n’roll» (2014), «Wonderland» (2015), «To Crack Bloggers» (2016) and dramatic series «257 Reasons to Live» (2020), «Filatov» (2020).
