Behind a burgundy velvet curtain in the window of a small tin shed at Nevsky Prospekt, Ira sits and checks that the city's wire buses run on time. Her work is a remnant of the communist system where everyone had to have a job. From her street corner, she has time to reflect on the city, the people, and her own life. She has been made aware of how quickly life can change and knowing that she sees life in a different light. With a beautiful cinematography and soundscape, director Lisa Partby’s portrait of Ira is a slice of life in a changing city.
