Narrative
DC Premiere


It is 1979 Carole and Jerome are 20, and going on an organized trip to Odessa in the USSR, deep behind the Iron Curtain. During the day, they pose as simple tourists and visit monuments and museums. In the evening, they secretly rendezvous with “refuseniks,” Jews persecuted by the Soviet regime for wanting to leave the country. There, they discover an underground world, cruel and absurd. While Carole is motivated by political commitment and a taste for risk, for Jérôme, the real motivation behind this trip is Carole herself.
