Parsley Syndrome (2015)

Since his childhood Petya has been fascinated by the puppet theatre, but even more so by a living girl: Liza. Petya creates Liza, like Pygmalion made Galatea: he becomes her father, friend, and husband... Only if Pygmalion met the challenge of bringing a stone to life, Petya faces another problem: Liza is already very much alive. She never completely obeys him and never fully belongs to him... “Puppet Syndrome” is a story of the all-consuming love of a creator for his creation.
