A sentimental collage about the difficult relationship of two Russian brothers living in different countries. Denis visits younger Zhenya at his new home in Berlin. The western capital isn't the only thing too outlandish for Denis' bohemian tastes. Apparently, little brother isn't little anymore and the short visit soon turns into a bonafide bickering match that lasts until the very moment Denis gets on the train to go home... and it becomes too late.
