About

In the suburbs of Moscow, reigned around 1571 Tsar Ivan IV, 'the Terrible'. Widowed, he is looking for a new wife for the third time. He chooses the young Marfa; she loves another man but bends to the will of the Tsar and renounces her love.

From this starting plot, the Russian director Dmitri Tcherniakov retains only the frame. A live competition is organised for a virtual monarch like in a reality show called 'Joe Millionaire' where competitors attempt to marry a rich man. Here, the characters become the various players of the audiovisual industry, bringing an acerbic criticism of contemporary TV.
