Plot synopsis
A film about Russian village, an ordinary Orthodox parish which is viewed as just the ideal ecovillage so many times discussed by Green parties. But in this world, in front of which modern people feel sincere amazement and wonder in the face of Life and Creation, ordinary people live. They gathered in a small village over a river, around a white church built in the end of 18th century to live together, to work together, to smile at each other and at least to be patient towards each other. To do so people need to believe in something common.
