Vacation is a youth drama set in an industrial suburb of an anonymous Russian provincial city. Sixteen year old Olga and seventeen year old Sergei, two lonely and alienated teenagers, fall in love with each other, winning a short period of happiness which coincides with the autumn vacation at school, amidst cruel and meaningless life of the neighborhood, marred by violence and alcohol abuse. Both main characters' primary desire is to leave town but, similarly to other neighborhood youths, they realize that their options in life are limited and try to have as much fun as they can right here and right now. Olga and Sergei cling to each other, but their love cannot save them from the adult world's cruelty and harshness.
