Plot synopsis
A small provincial Russian town. The film begins with a short dialogue between the deputy mayor and the town’s chief architect. They sit in a car and look at an old five-storey building. The architect says that the house is in an emergency state and should either be pulled down or undergo major reconstruction. The deputy mayor only waves his arms: this house is going to stand for many years to come.
The film consists of four short stories, whose heroes and plots are connected among each other, among other things through the house itself, in which the four stories unfold.
