Lilja is 16 years old. Her only friend is the young boy Volodja. They live in a poor village in the Russia, fantisizing about a better life. One day, Lilja falls in love with Andrej. He is going to Sweden, and invites Lilja to come along and start a new life.


Puts A Face on the Headlines Harrowing account of descent into hell of 16 year-old girl abandoned by mother in post-USSR backwaters. Extremely well-acted by lead (Oksana Akinshina), but plot is linear, points only in one direction, down. Intrusive magic realism in the form of angels could have been dispensed with, detracts with schmaltz from the otherwise uncompromising, cohesive social realism.
