Arrhythmia (Russian: Аритми́я) is a 2017 Russian drama film directed by Boris Khlebnikov. Participant of the contest Kinotavr.[2] It was released on 28 September, 2017.


Oleg is a young gifted paramedic. His wife Katya, a doctor, works at the hospital emergency department. She loves Oleg, but is fed up with him caring more about patients than her. She tells him she wants a divorce. The new head of Oleg's EMA substation is a cold-hearted manager who's got new strict rules to implement. Oleg couldn't care less about the rules - he's got lives to save. His attitude gets him in trouble with the new boss. The crisis at work coincides with the personal life crisis. Caught between emergency calls, alcohol-fueled off-shifts, and search for a meaning in life, Oleg and Katya have to find the binding force that keeps them together.
