Watch trailer


Genre: Drama
Logline: A hot-tempered and willful idealistic truth-seeker, on learning about the flaws of the people he adores, breaks with his hectic life in the heat of the moment and retreats to a monastery. However, the retirement does not save him from the vagaries of life: temptation, suffering, desires, lust, and pride force him to make a desperate step. 

Лев Николаевич Толстой


With the script based on the short novel by Leo Tolstoy, our intention is to:

- highlight the spiritual and moral values advocated in the great classic works of literature and prove that the younger generation can respect and appreciate the cultural heritage of Russia;

- answer the questions about the most intimate matters: search for the meaning of life, faith, and one’s mission. After all, spiritual search and the search for one’s true self are the matters that humanity has always been concerned about and that are growing even more important in the modern society.
