Storyline

Khleb - imya sushchestvitelnoe (aka... Bread is the proper noun) is a ten-hour epic about life of three generations in central Russia, based on the eponymous book by Mikhail Alekseev. Set around the Volga river. The story begins around 1900, when Russian peasants are let free and allowed to own their farmlands. But soon they suffer from losses during the 1917 Russian Revolution and the following Civil War. Then, the major national catastrophe is started by Stalin: his communist government kills millions of farmers and steals all their food supplies, causing the longest and deadliest famine all over central Russia during the 1920's and 1930's. The following popular uprising is brutally suppressed by Stalin in the "Great Terror" of 1930s. Written by Steve Shelokhonov
