Full Synopsis

A famous TV personality is pushed to his limits by an ardent fan, a single middle-aged woman lands herself a disastrous one-night stand and a group of odd youths claim to have time-travelled from the 1980s. These are some of the strange darkly comical scenarios that take place within the Aurora, an ostentatious, Soviet-era spa resort, nestled among idyllic hills and lakes. Taking place over the course of a single day, but presented in a non-linear narrative structure, the film weaves farcical elements with social commentary, providing a beguiling insight into present-day Kyrgyzstan.
