The film is set in St. Petersburg, Russia after the Russian revolution of 1917. Based on the eponymous book by Boris Lavrenev. Maj. General Yevgeni Pavlovich Adamov (Popov) was a lawyer in the Tzar's Army and a professor of law at the Military Academy before the Russian Revolution. In the fall of 1918 he was arrested on false accusations and suffered the loss of all his property and honors. During the turbulent times of Revolution he managed to use all his experience and professionalism to prove his innocence. He was released from prison and all charges against him were dropped. He became a free man, but the reality is changed, and his adaptation to the post-revolutionary life was not easy.Written by

a provocative film. for the expectations of viewer. for the impressive model of Christian life. for the honest perspective about a world without victories. a film about fundamental values. as support for reflection. as sketch of solitude, courage, faith and the best manner to walk across a world in changing. so, a useful film. for understand the past. for define a period, for remind small things who could transform everything. a remember. and one of the impeccable Soviet films.
