Film about Art, about Love, about Freedom. Inspired by an unbelievable fate of the Russian poet Anna Barkova. Soviet Russia, 1921. The young poet Anna Barková is to embark on a starry career, her first collection has just been published and she is believed to become the greatest Russian poet, overshadowing even great Pushkin. A few years later, however, Anna sits in a crowded cattle truck heading for the barren steppes of Kazakhstan. This will not be her only journey and only camp. The poet Anna Barková (1906-1976) spent 22 years of her life in gulags. She survived thanks to her poems, thanks to hope and passionate love for a woman named Valentina.
