Synopsis: 

Twenty-two-year-old Oleg doesn’t live up to his mother’s expectations, Marina. She thinks of him as a “autistic loafer” and he does not correspond to her masculine ideal. Oleg doesn’t have any friends and is scared of having a romantic or sexual relationship. Marina subjects him to a series of treatments, each one more absurd than the other, in order to try and rouse him from his lethargic state. Oleg’s salvation eventually comes from an unexpected source: theatre.
