Boris and Zhenya, a couple going through a bitter divorce, still reluctantly live together while trying to sell their apartment. They can’t wait to begin anew with their respective lovers and are oblivious to the terrible effect their constant arguments are having on their shy, lonely 12-year-old son Alyosha. When Alyosha suddenly and mysteriously disappears, they have to work together to find their son with the help of the police and a group of volunteers who search for missing children. Faced with bureaucratic apathy and focused on their own romantic, erotic, professional and hedonistic aspirations, the parents are ill-equipped to deal with the loss of their son.
