    Last Resort Synopsis

    Tanya, young and naive, leaves Moscow with her street-wise 10-year-old son Artiom to meet her English fiance. But after he fails to turn up at the airport, Tanya and her son find themselves virtually imprisoned in a dead-end seaside resort where all refugees are forced to live. Desperate to escape a nightmarish world of misfits and no-hopers, Tanya forges an unusual alliance with amusement arcade manager Alfie, which soon develops into something more. But is he just another man who will let her down, or will Tanya and Artiom finally escape?
