Tag Line: A love story, only not.
A hopeless romantic comedy take on Dostoevsky’s White Nights set in modern-day where Fyo, a naive ignored man-child, falls in love with the only person who recognizes his existence, Nastenka, a hot-headed blind girl. Problem is that she is ready to hang herself from a tree while waiting for her lover, Steve, to return from Africa, where he’s gone off to save the children. Fyo will do anything to be with Nastenka, even if it means helping her win back her dream lover.
