Plot synopsis
Life in Russia in 1917 was not limited to the clashes of the civil war, the exchange of fire, demonstrations and rallies. Many people lived or at least tried to live in peace and creation. The great Chaliapin sang and performed operas in Moscow and Petrograd; director Vsevolod Meyerhold played Lermontov's play "Masquerade" on the stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater and Anna Akhmatova and Sergei Eisenstein came to applaud him. The future writer Konstantin Paustovski stored impressions of Moscow in the fall and summer. And in the manor of Lopasnia-Zatchatievskoié near Moscow, a happy coincidence revealed a manuscript of Pushkin considered as lost.
The film is built from films and photos over a hundred years old.
