An 8-year-old boy travels with his mother towards his grandfather, but their journey is stopped when the young woman dies of typhus in an unknown town. But the boy is determined to go on. Neymann’s film is a visual journey into a country covered in snow and left poor by war. This is a place of beautiful, deserted landscapes and people overcome by both need and greed. The film is based on motifs drawn from the autobiographical story by Friedrich Gorenstein who penned the script for Tarkovsky’s Solaris.
