Event description

Description

The story centres around Daryna (Rymma Zyubina), who returns to Ukraine after spending two years in Genoa working as a badante (‘maid’) for a rich and newly-divorced lawyer (Mauro Cipriani) and his bitter mother (Lina Bernardi). These years of illegal work made it possible for Dmytro (Vitaliy Linetskiy), Daryna’s husband, to build a new house in their village, and for her teenage daughter to pursue her studies in the city. They have also changed Daryna to her core: she returns to her homeland a city-dweller and an independent woman. What does the future hold for her?
