A rare disease makes these people look decades older

This film poses the question of just how much looks matter in modern society. All of the subjects suffer from a rare genetic disorder that makes them seem older than they really are. Irina, a 30-year old single mother, doesn’t let it stop her from living life to the full. She counts her blessings and appreciates that her condition doesn’t actually make her age faster. Her son, Kirill, has also inherited the disease. He’s plotting to find her a good husband. Meanwhile, student Ekaterina has already found one and they are expecting their first child.
