Plot synopsis
Based on Eugeny Shvartz’s famous play-fairytale «The Dragon». The dragon, as an absolute evil, is dangerous not due to its cruelty only but the ability to gain on any human sole, warp it and make a human spiritually bankrupt. First and foremost, it is necessary «to kill the dragon» in yourself, that is the way to recovery one’s human dignity.
