The year is 1935, in Stalinist Russia. A new building in Moscow with communal apartments sees tenants moving in. The film is about the fate of the people in one of these communal apartments. There are the terrible years of the Purges which are to come soon, followed by war, cold, hunger and bitter farewells. With the end of the War, the joy of living returns; the sun shines in the building's windows once more. The sun shines and the poplars bloom as the children once more go to school.

DVD-R is in Russian with switchable English subtitles. Approx. 94 mins. See film sample for audio and video quality!
