Delving deep into a post-industrial city of Russia, somewhere to the West of the Ural mountains, there is a spot of color. Winter, blizzard, minus 20 degrees. Sky, snow, houses and people. All of these are painted in gray - the same as the dull weather. Only one person dares to break the ordinary and give this world its lively colors. This is a story of a painter! All her life, she has been painting life in all its abstract colors: lively and vibrant. Pastel. On canvas. On thick gray, manufactured paper. But for allowing her this luxury of giving life its colors, she earns her daily grind doing different jobs: dancing, making workshops and even decorating friend's apartments in her specific-original style. She likes colors: especially bright ones, with deep tones and tints. You can read this in her dress-code! She might put on a bright yellow coat and bright blue trousers with a deep red beret. This is a story about a painter in today's Russian world. It might be a typical clichÃ©, about poor artists with creative genius and with dreams. But then again, it might become a myth - once upon a time there was a painter challenging life in all its different colors.
