Plot Outline

Today this story by Dostoevsky acquires an especially pungent meaning. Modern literature and cinematography mostly portray people as consumerists or individuals driven into a corner by merciless reality. In the meantime, few if any deal with such delicate topics as the beginning of first love so intensively longed for and — facing the first disenchantment.

In the presence of director Tatiana Voronetskaya and actor Dmitri Sergin

Plot Outline

A remote village. Living here ― only a couple of the Loparev pensioners and two lonely old men Grishka and Lyokha who detest both Sanya and his wife Tatiana. They won’t take Sanya a-fishing, they don’t drink wine with him or invite him over. And all this because Sanya is married. But then misfortune happens: Sanya dies, leaving Tatiana a widow. Tatiana invites Grishka and Lyokha to a wake on Sanya’s 40th deathday. It was since then that Grishka, after seeing Tatiana’s grief, suddenly realizes how desperately lonely he is.

Once you’ll wake up on the lawn in a park on hearing an unknown girl saying “Hi” to you, and your life will make a U-turn.
