Storyline

Nizhny Novgorod, 1913. In the house of the Zheleznov family, children are taught from a very young age to say "It's mine" - my ship, my house, my factory. Members of this family count the money acquired through the labor of others, and can spend it overnight playing cards. They engage themselves in reckless adultery and secretly spy on each other, pray and take part in shady dealings in the name of God. Vassa has it all - money, power, authority and intelligence. But does not have one thing - the future. Written by Anonymous
