Kyiv, 2016, Lidia (25) moved to the capital seven years ago from a provincial town in eastern Ukraine, where her parents still live. She has a highly complex relationship with her mother (44),
they do not accept each other’s lifestyle, communicate in different languages, and see each other only on New Year’s Eve. This relationship negatively affects Lidia’s self-acceptance and self-actualization.
She uses her knowledge from psychology podcasts to improve the situation with her mother but only brings the problem to a dead end.
From a new acquaintance, Lidia learns that the key to changing the situation lies not in altering her relationship with her mother, but in changing her own attitude towards her. However, this fundamentally changes the situation and now Lidia must reboot her own system.
