“Granddad” (2014)

Old man Mikhalych revives at morgue.  What for?  Again a wrecked house, again drinking companions, no family, no children, no grandchildren.  Emptiness.  Unexpectedly, the seventeen-years-old girl Sasha, appears in his house.  Pregnant.  Having made Sasha his granddaughter for all the people around him, Mikhalich even for himself started to believe in that.  His life begins to take a reason and change.  But … somebody’s looking for Sasha.  And not all who searching for Sasha wants for her to return home safe and healthy.
