Plot synopsis
Drama.
Fedor discovers unexpectedly that he has a brother who lives in an orphanage; but no way did he expect to find a dark-skinned child with the full bouquet of bad habits and street wisdom. Having fetched Gena from the orphanage, Fedor finds himself struggling not only against the world around him, which is not prepared to accept his non-standard-looking brother, but also with those people who before Genaís appearance were his closest friends. The brothers by birth have to pass a hard test before they learn to understand each other.
