Plot synopsis
Ex-con Kermek and his beloved Eva want to leave their crime-infested lives on the Kazakh steppes behind. He has a dream: building a movie theater in the mountains. Will Kermek’s love of Alain Delon be strong enough to keep them out of the violent clutches of the mafia?

Kermek is a folk character who came to modern times. He has pure and simple understanding of the world: good is good, evil is evil. It won’t be easy for such hero to survive in this cruel world. But he is kind, and his kindness will help him to get through everything.
