Grisha adores the Moscow puppet theater where his parents work, but is bullied mercilessly because of it, and is considered not “masculine” enough, even by his own grandfather. Things take a turn for the worse when Grisha learns that Sam, his favorite actor and mentor, is leaving the country to escape homophobia.
