From Andrey Zvyagintsev, the acclaimed director of “The Return” (Venice Film Festival Golden Lion winner and Golden Globe nominee). Kolia (Aleksey Serebryakov) lives in a small fishing town near the stunning Barents Sea in Northern Russia. He owns an auto-repair shop that stands right next to the house where he lives with his young wife Lilya (Elena Lyadova) and his son Roma (Sergey Pokhodaev) from a previous marriage. The town’s corrupt mayor Vadim Shelevyat (Roman Madyanov) is determined to take away his business, his house, as well as his land. First the Mayor tries buying off Kolia, but Kolia unflinchingly fights as hard as he can so as not to lose everything he owns including the beauty that has surrounded him from the day he was born. Facing resistance, the mayor starts being more aggressive. In Russian with English subtitles. Vitals: Director: Andrey Zvyagintsev.
