Beanpole takes place in 1945, Leningrad. World War II has devastated the city, demolishing its buildings and leaving its citizens in tatters, physically and mentally.
Although the siege of Leningrad is finally over, life and death continue their battle in the wreckage that remains.
Two young women who work in a nearby hospital, Iya (the beanpole of the title) and impetuous Masha, have built a bond based around caring for Masha’s son. As they search for meaning and hope in the struggle to rebuild their lives amongst the ruins an extraordinary event happens which plunges them into further danger.
