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?
I grew up under the portrait of a man I never met. He was a hero, they said. A man who wasn't afraid to apply for immigration when his chances were nil. But mostly he was going to conquer the Universe. A genius. The new Einstein. He was supposed to know how to take a risk.
