Plot synopsis
Epic drama. Parable.
The epic panorama concerns the journey of some men (muzhiks), whose land ëhas been sold by somebodyí for oil development; a journey from the provinces to the capital to find the truth, from the Urals up to Moscow to search for the man responsible for the misfortunes. Let him tell them, the Russian muzhiks, what he has done with the land and why he has taken away from them the last thing they had... Their journey is accompanied by themes and myths of Russiaís film classics. Pyotr Lutsikís only work as director became the first cult film of the post-perestroika period.
