Will you survive if nobody loves you? Get an uncompromising glimpse of troubled adolescent life in post-Communist Kyiv through Tonia, the new kid in school, as she tries to assimilate into her new world. But as a love triangle starts to form among the clique, will her past catch up with her? In an attempt to hide from an abusive ex-boyfriend, Tonia transfers to a new high school, where she instantly clicks with Lera, a popular troublemaker who quickly pulls Tonia into her orbit. In over her head, Tonia soon finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, with feelings for two boys in Lera’s close-knit friend group. Meanwhile, Tonia’s ex is closing in on her with increasingly violent threats. Exploring themes of desire, belonging, and impermanence, this coming-of-age story is full of trials, tribulations, and real heart. Set in Kyiv in the 1990s, FOREVER-FOREVER is an edgy love letter to the rebellious youth movement that rose from the ashes of the Soviet Union. —G.S.
