Plot synopsis
During the Soviet era, the entire country sang "Soviet Easter Song" and other songs, rumored to be "street" songs. Few knew that these songs had an author - Yuz Aleshkovsky. Having traveled from East to West, he became a famous writer in a country that is still considered the most well-read in the world. The concepts of Freedom and Creativity are not mere philosophical ideas for him but, simply put - his life's credo. The genre of this film by Sergei Miroshnichenko can be defined as a "lyrical post-Soviet comedy with a shade of drama".
