In the living room, full of creative dreams and appeals, the luminous figures of the sixteenth-century poets come to life. Their young friendly circle inspires a poetic moment in a tense guitar string atmosphere of the workshop. Verses by G. Shpalikov, E. Yevtushenko, B. Akhmadulina, A. Voznesensky, songs by B. Okudzhava and O. Halych, children from the books and records of parents, like balls, cut off seemingly cloudless space. And quite near there is an insidious voice from the radio receiver and he demands to deprive Boris Pasternak of Soviet citizenship for the hateful power of the novel “Doctor Zhivago”.
