Plot synopsis
The film is made in the long-forgotten genre of political satire. As is well-known, much has changed in Russia over the last 20 years, and yet nothing has changed over the last 300. The particularities of the Russian mentality are shown through a portrait of today's Ivan Susanin, who every summer leads tours through the forests of Kostroma, working as a forest ranger in the winters.
