Winner of the Un Certain Regard prize in Cannes, part Pulp Fiction, part Betty Blue, Naugmanov’s film charts the attempt of enigmatic drifter, Moro, who returns to Almaty to get his ex-girlfriend off heroin. The couple escape to the Aral Sea but find that the sea has all but disappeared. When they return to the city, the mafia are waiting for them.

Boasting brilliant and dangerous performances from Soviet rock stars, Viktor Tsoi as Moro and Peter Mamonov of Zvuki Mu as his drug-dealing enemy, this film was the first to break the Soviet taboo of depicting drug addiction. It is widely seen as the film that created the Kazakh New Wave.
