No one expects Dasha and Masha to live beyond childhood. Not the Soviet scientists who study them, the other ‘defective’ children who bully them, or the ‘healthies’ from whom the twins must be locked away.
But they don’t know Masha like her sister does. While Dasha is gentle and quiet and fears everything, her twin is fearless and irrepressible and determined they will survive. Whatever the cost.
Award Winning Film
In 2018, director Diana Taylor made a documentary based on the book, “The Less You Know, The Sounder You Sleep”.
It went around the world to film festivals from India to Canada, winning numerous awards.
