This is the story of two sixteen-year-olds, Alexandra Makarova and Danila Krasnov, who are fighting for their love and their right to be themselves. In order to be together, they must escape from their homes, go into hiding, and lead a double life. Trying to protect their freedom of choice and their individuality, they cross the line and turn into Bonnie and Clyde on the run, trying to avenge the world that has no room for them. ------Sasha and Danny, both 15, lose their virginity together. When Sasha’s parents find out, her policeman stepfather forbids her to set foot outside the family home. Danny and Sasha run away together in protest against their parents and the society as a whole. Freedom goes to their heads. Danny, who is normally quiet and unassuming, runs wild. Sasha’s stepfather takes command of the search efforts. He is determined to put Danny in juvenile prison. A harmless adventure escalates into an operation to arrest armed criminals.
