Plot synopsis
“Tell me the way you rest and I will tell you who you are” – this is how we can describe the character of the film “Broadway. The Black Sea”. This collective character is a small tent town named “Broadway” that spontaneously appears every summer at a wild beach on the outskirts of Tuapse. People come here with no advance booking of accommodation (a holiday-maker type) and they can’t afford even the cheapest holiday hotel. It is almost a virtual town that will disappear tomorrow, that grows only for a season; people here suffer and fall in love, play and lose; some are born here, and others die in the course of such a short period of time – summer vacation.
