Miner's Day

  • Russia
Audio Tracks 

15 years ago here there has been a happy life and a place to work. Since the mine was closed, the only things that have left here are old barracks, heap of processes ground and needless people who has lost the sense in life. This is a history of one family living in this ghost-town. Is it possible to survive in such conditions and do not go below the line, when all moral frames are vanished? Are all people's dreams for happiness destroyed? Whatever horrible the reality is, a human always seeks for a place for a feast, dream and love.

This film follows the author's previous film SANYA AND SPARROW.
