Plot synopsis
Film-portrait of a village self-taught artist Polikarp Sudomoikin. He lives in a surpassingly beautiful place, a village Bichura in Zabaikalie and paints his quaint pictures on a hunch. Former carpenter Sudomoikin started painting only after the retirement. Naked beauties filled with love and bliss surrounded by wild animals, birds and clean pure waters are looking down from his canvases. The connoisseurs compare Polikarp Sudomoikin with Pirosmani, one of the best artists of naive panting.
