Plot synopsis
The film has three main characters representing the three main elements of the Russian personality: the worker team leader Chapurin (power on village level), the meek industrious Skuridin and Timofei Ivanovich, drowning his mental discord in wine...
Through their personalities we follow the course of life in a distant province with its joys, worries and grieves.
The film was awarded the Prize of Peace at the 47th International Film Festival in Berlin (1998); the Press Prize at the KINOSHOK International Film Festival in Anapa (1998); the Special Mention of the FIPRESSI Jury at the 47th International Film Festival in Berlin (1998).
