Set in Russia just after the end WWII, Stanislav Govorukhiun's Not By Bread Alone concerns a love triangle that offers a parable for the conflict between communism and individuality. Viktor Sukhorukov portrays Drozhdoz, a powerful local figure who believes the communism allows average people and gifted people to stay on equal footing. His wife (Svetlana Khodchenkova) loses her feelings for him and soon beings a scientist attempting to create inventions. His creations are usually compromised by Drozhdoz.
