The title character Vera, which means “hope” in Russian, is a headstrong teenage girl, who, to the dismay of her parents, lives only for the moment, making no provision for her future. Produced during Gorbachev’s “perestroika and glasnost” period in the Soviet Union, the movie captures the essence of soviet society that lost a moral rudder.
Part of the "Russia: The 21st Century in Print and Film" flm series.
