Plot synopsis
Director Valery Todorovsky's somber drama stars Oleg Yankovsky as Mitya, a middle-aged university professor whose wife dies suddenly. In the course of going through her possessions, he comes upon letters proving that she has been having an affair with another man (Sergei Garmash) for the past 15 years. Consumed with grief and jealousy, Mitya seeks out and confronts his wife's former lover, and in the process of coming to grips with his wife's infidelity, nearly destroys himself and his relationship with his teenage son.
