Plot synopsis
Makarov is the name of a poet suffering from writer's block. It is also the name of a pistol, he buys with the ten thousand roubles he earned for his last book, due to his fear of the omnipresent crime in Moscow. Makarov's family and friends keep urging him to write, while he becomes increasingly obsessed with the pistol, constantly questioning what he is and what he is becoming.
