It’s 1969. Intelligent & witty concert violinist, Gitel Bargman (Marija Korenkaitettr), lives in a Kuybyshev apartment.  To the outsider, she has everything, but Gitel hides a secret.  A survivor of the Holocaust, she is haunted not only by painful memories of the past, but also by the ghosts of her two sisters who perished in an extermination camp.  Unable to escape her past, Gitel cannot embrace her future.  One night she meets Lev, a quiet man who struggles with his own disturbing past.  Reluctantly and painfully, Lev and Gitel try to find love in one another.
