A tragicomedy about an amateur theater in Volyn. Seeking to overcome his personal crisis, а renowned stage and screen actor returns from the capital city to his native village to create a theatre with his fellow villagers, thus proving to himself what he is still capable of.

After a decade of fame, a small troupe is tired. It is increasingly difficult for the director to find actors for new theatrical productions. The choice falls on Chekhov’s vaudeville for three actors. On stage – the director, the director’s wife and the director’s childhood friend, the head of the club. Summer heat. Serenity. Six months before the war.
