Silent Souls

Road-movie in the most secret corners of tenderness and sadness, film-requiem, a film about love.

Buntings are the small birds, wild sparrows, that are living almost on the entire territory of Russia. Green-yellow lumps - you'll never turn attention on them immediately, but experts transfer buntings to canaries cages, and so canary learns to sing. The movie characters are alike the buntings - unobtrusive and simple in appearance: Myron - Director of the paper mill in the town of Neya, photographer of the same mill Aist Sergeev, and Tanya, the draftsman - people who may be your neighbors at home, but you never know what passions simmer in their deep souls.
