Mukha is the nickname of Vera Mukhina, a 16-year old schoolgirl from a small Russian town. Mukha takes boxing classes and settles her own problems, forgiving neither peers nor adults for their mistakes. After her mother dies, her father suddenly enters Mukha’s life. Fyodor Mukhin, a trucker, opens the door with his own key, puts his toothbrush in a cup and starts living in her house. So her father did not get burnt alive in a tank, as Mum used to tell. He just failed to show up before. It’s enough for Mukha to declare war on him.
