Moscow. 1992. Sasha Greenberg (Sam Robards), an astrophysicist, returns to the city of his birth after 17 years of exile. Formerly reviled as a traitor, he is now welcomed back as a hero. The period of “Perestroika” (restructuring) has turned everything upside down. Sasha has been invited to deliver an important paper about the structure of the universe. He’s thought to have made positive gains toward making sense of the cosmos. It’s a time of great chaos in his own life. His marriage to an American scientist (Ally Sheedy), who helped him leave Russia, has all but failed. His relationship with a beautiful filmmaker has reached an impasse. Complicating matters, Sasha suspects that a fiery young adolescent, formerly unknown to him, might be his daughter.
