Sixteen-year-old slacker Mark is the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants in the suburbs of Toronto. When his uncle enters into an arranged marriage with a woman from Moscow, she arrives with her troubled 14-year old daughter, Natasha. A secret and forbidden romance begins between the two of them that has bizarre and tragic consequences for everyone involved. Natasha is adapted from Bezmozgis’s collection of short stories, “Natasha and Other Stories,” which was named a New York Times Notable Book and has been translated into 15 languages.
