Alex, a gifted but troubled young musician leaves his home in Glory, Indiana alongside his twin sister Tanya, in pursuit of self, stardom and maybe even a career in New York City. The twins meet Eúgene, an easygoing leading man: Alex’s foil in nearly every way. Our title characters forge an unlikely, unshakable friendship and join a determined group of freshly graduated theater kids, who set out to launch a web series - in the hopes of getting discovered.
Alex & Eúgene melds Pushkin’s poetic world of high society and Russian Romanticism with a thoroughly modern tale of young artists, struggling to find themselves in a world where friendship is often the only refuge from despair.
