Plot synopsis
The boarding school attached to the St. Nicholas Shartomsky Monastery. “Why is it necessary to be obedient? For your general benefit.” They are still children; they even play football in church services. They already know what discipline is, and the lack of freedom, and injustice. In years to come they will be addressed as holy fathers.
