Top astrophysicist Sasha Greenberg has spent the past 17 years working in the United States. An invitation to speak at a Congress on Cosmology in his native Moscow brings him home for the first time to confront colleagues, and unanswered personal questions. As Russia undergoes perestroika, public and private lives are radically re-assessed and Sasha sees the social and sexual upheavals as a crisis of civilization, and a reflection of his own obsessive studies into the nature of the Universe itself.

Did You Know?
Professor, you're a wise man. Tell me, why is it all so awful? Whenever I tell someone I want to go to America they tell me it's no better over there. Like they want to leave you nothing to hope for.
Happiness is not found in Moscow. Or New York. It's here. You just need time to find it.
