Russia. Not long ago. Throughout the country the old Soviet passports are being exchanged for the new Russian ones. A provincial photographer travels from one Siberian village to another taking 35x45 mm passport photos of the villagers. Each client’s photo in a way summarizes that person’s life. Making a profound observation of the countryside life, the film unfolds as a poetic story about the world-view of people living in remote areas at the crossroads of the two juxtaposed cultures: the old Soviet and the modern Russian ones. The black and white stylistics of this point-of-view documentary is symbolically in tune with the white and black photos taken by the photographer.
