Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Despite blending familiar elements from both of his cultures, Greek-Russian filmmaker Petros Sevastikoglou creates a totally original fable with this tale of a traveling magic show performing in a small Russian town. Local construction worker Nikita (Taras Koliadov) falls in love with one of the show's stars, the beautiful Alina (Anna Yanoskaya), but when a big storm comes through the town, the troupe pulls up its stakes and moves on. Time passes and Nikita takes a new job at a construction site, while Alina becomes disenchanted with her job and leaves the show. The construction site becomes the stage for Nikita's battle for Alina with the disintegrating troupe's director, the famous Mesmer (Zinoviev Gert). Marina Vlady co-stars with Sergei Desnitsky.
