What is a poor girl to do: to marry a rich old man she does not love or the beloved one who is a poor young man? What is her widowed mother to do: to arrange her daughter’s destiny or her own? Leonid Kheifets is sure that the scenes from Moscow life of the 19th century are still relevant to this day.
