Plot synopsis
The action unfolds on the farmstead of a nunnery far from the city, where some vagabonds have gathered - a dozen people with their own stories and personal tragedies. They build a church and help with the farmstead which is run by mother Katerina and her assistant, the 18-year-old lay sis¬ter Olya - an unsuitably simple-hearted girl, always full of admiration and yet constantly duped. Ekaterina has taken her from an orphanage. One day the businessman Pasha arrives at the monastic farmstead, and with his appearance comes also anxiety. The master of his life, Pasha does not yet know that is fatally ill. Only Olya feels the illness deep inside him; she pities him and loves with her naive children's soul. This helps Pasha - and with the arrival of spring he regains control of his life...
