Plot synopsis
The story takes place in a small village on the beach of Sea of Azov at the beginning of 1960-s.
Adolescents passionately dream of love about which they have heard from their elder experienced friends. A 16 year-old Ignat is the first to find out what the real feeling is. His love for an adventuress who pretends to be a singer from capital becomes destructive. It is a story of first love and treachery.
Funny and incredible local myths and legends which are related to the cult of ancient settlings are interlaced with the plot. Three thousand years ago on the place of this seaside village a chancel of a pagan Death Goddess was located and natives till today believe that every hundred years she turns back for new victims.
Unique world of childhood is created in this poetic film
An extraordinary visual magic of the film, lyricism and profound philosophic message which is put in the tragicomedy reminds us epical poetry of Paradzanov and Kusturitsa.
