A four-part film-monologue.

Maya Turovskaya, the legendary culture expert and author of books on Maria Barabanova, Bertolt Brecht, and Andrey Tarkovsky, tells us the story of her life as though it were a novel. Her childhood, her education—she tells her story like the writer she is. Her novel, however, is not written, it is being shot with a film camera and augmented with photographs and archive footage. In other words, this is a filmic monologue about an entire epoch.
