Venya is a high school student in Russia’s coastal city of Kaliningrad, who believes that the world is nearing its end. He studies the Bible obsessively, incessantly quoting chapter and verse. Setting off on a disturbing path to religious extremism when he refuses to undress for swimming lessons, he soon progresses to challenging the schools ‘modern’ teachings on sex and evolution. Inevitably conflicts follow; with his mother, classmates and particularly with his biology teacher Elen.

Russian director Kirill Serebrennikov delivers a scathing satire on the state of Russia today, in a powerful, mesmerising and deeply unsettling study of religious fundamentalism.
