Plot synopsis
The film is dedicated to the discussion about Russia that unfolded on samizdat’s pages between two titans of dissidence, leaders of the opposition Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Andrei Sakharov. At the beginning of the 70-s Solzhenitsyn wrote a letter to the USSR leaders in which he stated his vision about Russia and its future, its ways, its problems. But the reply was received from Sakharov.
