Hilda is blind, lives alone, and is visited by a carer once a week. Camelia is a young offender looking for her next mark. A surprising and curious relationship sparks off between these opposites as both search for connection and purpose.

Russian Dolls presented the opportunity to subtly warp the edges of what 'natural' light is, 
shifting the story onwards in an ever present abstraction of a living space.
