About the film

Official Selection of 31TH OPEN RUSSIAN FILM FESTIVAL "KINOTAVR"


The film tells the story of one day from the life of Elizaveta Glinka, who was known and loved by many as "Doctor Liza".

Liza's nearest and dearest are getting ready to celebrate Liza and her husband's 30th wedding anniversary. Naturally, Liza has also kept this day free to spend with her family. There's just one small item on her schedule: calling in at her charitable foundation Fair Care and tending to her weekly homeless patients at Paveletsky Train Station. But Doctor Liza's days are always filled with surprises.

At a hospital in the outskirts of Moscow, a five-year-old girl is dying. Eva's doctor has no choice but to discharge her. Eva's father is struggling to find the strong pain medication in such a short time to alleviate daughter’s pain and asks Doctor Liza for help. Realizing there's no way for her to obtain the medication legally, Doctor Liza resorts to illegal means: taking a pack of morphine from hospital supplies. The child's pain has been taken care of, but Doctor Liza soon finds herself under the scrutiny of Major Kolesov from Russia's Federal Drug Service...
