Plot Summary

"Only the wind, the sand, the reed and a desire to live not worse than the others..." - these words served as a base for the atmosphere of this story, and they are incredibly precise as a definition of the real world in these places. The Seagulls are a parable on the background of modern Kalmykia. It is about love, with the characters intuitively fulfilling forgotten traditions. Their love is silent and their sorrow is without tears - The seagulls are souls of dead fishermen, broken boats - a hope. Elza the fisherman's wife lives in a seaside town in Kalmykia. She wants to leave her husband but cannot take this step because she is afraid of uncertainty. Suddenly her husband dies. Because of his death, Elza has to think everything over and reconsider her views on life, on happiness, on liberty. Written by ANT!PODE Sales & Distribution [ru]
