Compartment No. 6 (15)

Two very different travellers bond on a sleeper train from Moscow to Murmansk in this beguiling, bittersweet romance about overcoming otherness. 

Young Finnish archaeology student Laura (Seidi Haarla) is convinced by her lecturer—and lover—to take a trip to an ancient site of petroglyphs near the Arctic Circle. However, when she boards the long-distance train to take her there, she finds she is sharing a carriage with the boorish and belligerent Ljoha (Yuriy Borisov), a foul-mouthed, misogynistic drunk travelling to his new job as a miner. Initially, they seem to have nothing in common, but as their journey goes on the two occupants of compartment no. 6 begin to form a bond they will never forget.
