A new film by Avdotya Smirnova, which received the award for best screenplay and the audience favorite award at the Kinotavr festival, tells a true story from the life of Leo Tolstoy, when the great writer defended a regimental scribe named Shabunin. This short episode turns into a metaphor for Russian life, with all of its problems and eternal questions that remain relevant to the present day. What do freedom, law, and charity mean? What is the price of human life in a society where the favor of those in power is more highly prized than justice?
