"A Hawk as Big as a Horse" follows the strange daily life of Lydia, born Sergei, a queer ornithologist who lives in Shcherbinka, a remote suburb of Moscow. She lives with her wife Vasilisa, working for a company that prevents bird strikes in airports. Vasilisa trains horses for the police of Moscow. In a wooden house that she built on her own Lydia tries to recreate the atmosphere of Twin Peaks, the famous David Lynch series she loves, and tries to make her own version. Sasha Kulak, the film's director, faces a question that will upset her concept of a of documentary: how can one extract reality from a dream? Sasha's voice draws us in until she becomes a character in a rare cinematic experience.
