Plot synopsis
Five angles of Dovlatov’s life and writing. The film-team digs to the roots of Dovlatov’s epoch and tells us about the circumstances under which the writer lived and wrote. Dovlatov’s relatives, friends, and famous critics tell their stories about him. He seems not to belong to himself anymore, – but real live Dovlatov is running through these legends to his readers. Dovlatov’s places, from old Tbilisi, Petersburg, Ukhta and Tallinn to Queens, New York, are shown in this film-excursion about one of the most popular writers of contemporary Russia.
