The Players

27-year-old Svetlana is a married woman, a mother, and a registered nurse. 17-year-old Vadim works as a garbage man. Though seemingly very different, the two have a unique passion in common: They participate in a live-action, interactive role playing game set in a forest.  Players dress up in medieval costumes and infuse magic into an enchanted world of wizards, warlocks, princesses, and knights. Through conniving schemes, devious acts, and alliances, they fight to prevent the loss of the kingdom. Interwoven into the complex plot of the games is also the real life story behind the birth of Vadim’s daughter.
