Plot synopsis
Since childhood an American of Russian origin had been madly in love with the famous Russian kerchiefs which were produced for more than 200 years in the town of Pavlovsky Posad. Earlier he had seen them only in pictures. No one could have foretold that when at the dawn of Perestroika he arrived in that very town, the provincial quiet would be disturbed by a real drama (a love story that you come across only in fairy tales). In a way it was destined to happen because the painter Anna was a person of rare outward and inward beauty full of purity and light. The only trouble was that her husband, the best kerchief printer wouldn’t survive without her. But we can’t give orders to our own hearts… or can we?
