The Ugly Swans
Cast & Crew
Victor Banev, a US-based Russian writer, goes in search of his daughter in Tashlinsk, an isolated ghost town subject to extreme climate change. Passing through a flaming forest in Poland, Victor arrives at the house of Dr Pilman after seeing his house in a dream. On arrival in Tashlinsk, he passes via passport control and a retinal scan to the flooded city, and a world of scientific, political and military indecision. He traces his daughter to a boarding school for gifted children run by mysterious mutants known as "mokretsy." As the conflict between the government and the outcasts becomes more intense, Victor decides he must find a way to save his daughter and enlists the help of the enigmatic Diana.
