A young Russian woman named Natasha is soon to be married and is on holiday in Rome where she meets Alba. She accompanies Alba to her hotel room as a curious acquaintance and stays as a growing friend. In this room in Rome, the two women come to know one another intimately over the course of the night, and explore and discover themselves along the way. Only the break of day threatens to break their newly forged bond. Written by

Five different languages are spoken in the movie; English, Spanish, Russian, Italian, and Basque. English is the primarily language spoken by the two lead characters, Elena and Natasha, to each other. Elena talks to herself in her native Spanish, and Natasha talks to herself in her native Russian. Natasha speaks fluent Italian (to the hotel staff). Except for Basque (one line is spoken by Elena), Natasha is shown to speak fluent English, Russian, and Italian and seems to understand Spanish while Elena is speaking it to her on occasion (despite that Natasha doesn't have a single phrase of Spanish in the movie), but it never becomes clear whether Natasha can speak Spanish too.

In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom. See more

I'm sorry, Vadim, but I can never tell you about this. I know you have many secrets about where you've been and the many women you've been with. Now, I have a secret. But it's much further away then yours. I have now been with a woman. I know I'm not lesbian. I know I'm not attracted to other women. Why am I attracted to this one? I am so confused. You'll always have that... my reflection. This... it's mine alone.
