Plot synopsis
The point of this long, conventional, and politically nuanced drama about a Soviet citizen's sojourn in Western capitalist lands would be more effective if not so exaggerated. After Pavlov (Nikolai Eremenko) exits the former USSR, he wanders through various sites in Europe and in North and South America, absorbing other cultures and ways of life. Unfortunately for him, what he saw the most was the underbelly of capitalism -- drugs and drunkenness, corruption and immorality. Now that he is safely back in the motherland, he breathes a sigh of relief, though neither the society nor his brother welcome him home with open arms.
