A young Russian girl in Brooklyn today finds her calling as a mystic. More
South Brooklyn is home to immigrants from every corner of the world, but one, Lizaveta Kirova, born in Russia, keeps a journal as she navigates life in a failing high school. She relates her story, a struggle to recapture a formative mystical experience that she had had as a child and which has been nearly suffocated by the harsh demands of city life. She forms friendships with two other outsiders and enters into an intimate relationship with a much older man that brings her to the hardest choice of her life - to follow her worldly ambition or fulfill the demands of the spirit.
