Plot synopsis
The "movie" started unfolding in their lives 10 years ago at the time the authors started filming. At the time Lena, a mother of several children, a living embodiment of the incomprehensible Russian soul, felt an urge to sacrifice herself, divorced Yura and got married to a murderer sentenced to life imprisonment. What was it? Today, when after numerous torturous ordeals Lena and Yura are again husband and wife, these simple rural aristocrats of the soul will surprise with the depth of self-analysis, the subtleness of feeling, humor and sadness over the impossible.
