TV-Drama History

1930 / 1940 - On the banks of the Irtych

A 57' tv drama directed in 1990 by Viatcheslav Sorokine

The story takes place in a small Siberian village situated on the banks of the river Irtych. Fire breaks out in a barn, and Stepan, a peasant, believes he knows who caused it.

The villagers can't find the culprit, however, so they lay waste to his house, paying no regard to the fact that his wife and three children are left homeless. Stepan's wife insists on giving them shelter.

Stepan is convoked first by the courts then by the kolkhoz, and accused of sheltering an enemy of the state. It's decided that he is a koulak, and he is sent into exile.
