Tribute to the legendary and eccentric Russian composer Oleg Nikolaevitch Karavaychuk, grew up under Stalin’s regime and last beatniks of a generation of artists who, to escape the KGB persecution, found his way out writing soundtracks, working side to side with directors such as S. Paradjanov and K. Muratova. A lyric film of liberating beauty, made of unexpected statements and chords played, in which the artist, 89 years old, expresses himself and plays in an almost psychic way, the “Russian spirit”.
