Life is not easy in the Soviet Union at mid-20 th century, especially for a factory worker who becomes an unwed mother. But Antonina is lucky to get a room in a communal apartment that she and her little girl share with three elderly women. Glikeria is a daughter of former serfs. Ariadna comes from a wealthy family and speaks French. Yevdokia is illiterate and bitter. All have lost their families, all are deeply traditional, and all become “grannies” to little Suzanna. Only they secretly name her Sofia. And just as secretly they impart to her the history of her country as they experienced it: the Revolution, the early days of the Soviet Union, the blockade and starvation of World War II. The little girl responds by drawing beautiful pictures, but she is mute. If the authorities find out she will be taken from her home and sent to an institution. When Antonina falls desperately ill, the grannies are faced with the reality of losing the little girl they love – a stepfather can be found before it is too late. And for that, they need a miracle.

“Go to bed now,” – she says, – “You’ll get back from the theatre on Sunday, and soon it’ll be New Year. It’ll come and we’ll have everything ready for it. Your mother promised us pies. We’ll get new flour and she’ll make them. The pies are tender, they jump into your mouth by themselves. And then another holiday – Christmas… And then the spring’s near – we’ll bake larks. We’ll bake them and take them to the church to offer them to the beggars. Not everyone is lucky like us to die in peace. There aren’t many people like that…”
