The short film Ophelia is one of the three novellas of the crime comedy Three Stories. All these stories are about murder and the people who become killers in all these episodes are the ones who at first glance seem to be completely incapable of murder. Ophelia tells the story of a beautiful girl Ofa, who works in the hospital archive. She hates both men and women, and loves only children. She is closely monitoring the fate of those who were abandoned by their mothers in the maternity hospital. Her literary ideal is Ophelia. How can the fate of Shakespeare's heroine be repeated in our time?

Among her most prominent works of the Soviet period are the films Brief Encounters and The Asthenic Syndrome. The most famous film of the post-Soviet period is the film The Tuner, which has become a real sensation at several international film festivals.
