Plot synopsis
“The Peasant” is a film about love, values and modern life. A typical representative of the “golden youth” Grisha brings his rich father to the brink of despair, who sends him to be re-educated in an unusual village. Not only does the young man have to work in the stable - but he is also forced to live according to the peasant traditions of the 19th century.
