Petrunya versus the patriarchy

One day, on the way home from another humiliating job interview, unmarried and unemployed Petrunya happens upon a traditional ceremony in which a group of men compete to catch a crucifix thrown into a river by a priest, and decides to grab it herself. Normally the winner is blessed with a year of good luck, but seeing as Petrunya is a woman, her victory is the start of a long list of problems. Based on real events GOD EXISTS, HER NAME IS PETRUNYA is a satirical drama about a woman at the end of her rope confronting patriarchal society.
