'Stop-Earth' is a sensual autobiographical story about exploring inner self. 16-year-old Masha studies in an ordinary Kyiv school in the 11th grade. Her close friends Yana and Senya help her not to feel awkward and detached in the team, experiencing a busy school life in their own way. In addition to future exams, Masha falls in love with her classmate Sasha. She understands that if you do not dare to ask - you will never know if it is mutual.

The main roles in the film were played by non-professional teenage actors- Mariia Fedorchenko, Arseniy Markov, Yana Isaenko, Oleksandr Ivanov.
