Plot synopsis
Holiday shows the audience a single night during the Great Patriotic War. The family of Georgii Aleksandrovich Voskresenskii, a researcher developing technology for chemical weapons in a secret institute, is celebrating the New Year in their house near besieged Leningrad. Obviously, the family belongs to the Soviet intellectual elite and for this reason, lives in a separate spacious house, in which every member including an old grandmother has their own room. The family is very well supplied even during the famine. Because the daughter, Lisa, and son, Denis, brought unexpected guests, Voskresenskii’s wife, Margarita, keeps trying to hide their privileges and attempts to present the whole family as ordinary and normal. However, the Voskresenskii’s guests, Masha, a hungry and weak girl from a bomb shelter, and a one-legged former soldier do not buy into her attempts and ask many questions. https://www.rusfilm.pitt.edu/holiday/
