Movie Info

MOSCOW NEVER SLEEPS is a multi-narrative drama about the hidden bonds that connects us all. The film dives headlong into the volatile intersections of contemporary Moscow and the intimate lives of five people: An ENTREPRENEUR whose business empire comes under siege by powerful bureaucrats, a TEENAGE GIRL mired in the misery of a broken home, A YOUNG MAN forced to choose between his girlfriend and his grandmother; a beautiful SINGER torn apart by the pursuit of two men, and an ailing FILM STAR who gets embroiled in a bizarre kidnapping. Over the course of one day, their lives will change forever. These stories weave through Moscow's choked cityscape as it celebrates its birthday with a massive fireworks display. They reveal the unrestrained energy of Europe's biggest city and the cruelty and beauty of the Russian spirit.
