Plot synopsis
The film tells the story of the legendary collector Gergui Kostaki through his daughter Aliki, artists A. Brusilovsky, O. Tselkov, I. Shelkovsky, art critics and museum staff. They argue, come up with various versions of the ups and downs of Kostaki's life and fate. From fragmentary reflections on the facets of his difficult and sometimes mysterious personality in the eyes of contemporaries, the portrait of a man who saved and preserved avant-garde art, of which Russia is proud, emerges today.
