The gap between the rich and the poor has widened beyond repair. While the rich minority enjoy the delights of life, poor folk exist in a perennial state of squalor. They are distracted, confused, with nothing to do but quarrel over their plight and think about the never-ending pursuit of a better life obtained through the collection of money. For Alyona and her neighbour Martika, the end of their friendship begins here. With polar opposite personalities, they slowly disintegrate from realism to idealism, forgetting the trust they once shared, allowing desperate circumstances to inflict constant loneliness and inducing a never ending cycle of torment.
