Plot synopsis
The fate of the outstanding Soviet cinematographer Vladislav Mikosha reveals an amazing symmetry of places, synchronism of people and events. Mikosha became a chronographer behind the camera, an analyst of the twentieth century who kept a lot of its great and dreadful events for us: of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior demolition, Mount Elbrus ascent, voyage to the Arctic by «Smolensk» steamship and rescue of Cheluskin sailors. At time of Word War II he was working in besieged Odessa, his camera was shooting Sevastopol defense and glorious march of Soviet troops in Europe. Mikosha was neither a politician nor a publicist. He was an artist and could «stop the time»”to show the way he saw it.
