"Today is a very important and exciting day for our entire crew - we release the picture, which we have been working on for the past year. Today we have the national premiere of the movie. Now representatives of all 89 regions of our country are present in the hall thanks to the Exposition," Maxim Korolev said.

"I believe that we are one of the pioneers who touched on this difficult and burning topic in order to try to comprehend and show the truth, which concerns a huge number of Russian people. This is a movie about human relations. It teaches to love the Motherland, Russian woman, who fell in love with the hero not because he drives a cool car or earns a lot, but because he is a man with normal human qualities, whom you can follow and with whom you can create a family," said Anton Shagin.

Alexander Prokhanov called the movie a work of art, which was created with excellent actors and a wonderful director.

"While we are watching the movie, while we are experiencing, applauding, smiling, there, in Donbass, people are fighting, storming, dying, cursing, praying, adoring, hating. This movie, while remaining a work of art, is a weapon. We created it, conceived it as a weapon, as a battlefield movie. We hope that this film will help us win," said writer Alexander Prokhanov.

Director and screenwriter of the movie Ilya Kazankov said that the idea to create the film belongs to the producer of the picture Maxim Korolev.

"He offered me to get in touch with the prose of Alexander Prokhanov. I responded with consent. For us it was very important to translate visual images into cinematic language without losing the meaning. The idea, which can be traced in the book, remained in the movie. It was one of the important elements in the work. I would very much like the picture to impress the viewer," said Ilya Kazankov.

The picture is released in Russian distribution on March 14, 2024 by "Atmosphere Cinema" in partnership with the TV channel "Russia". The plot of the movie unfolds in 2015. A young writer Nikolai Ryabinin lives in the capital, spends evenings in fashionable establishments and is not particularly interested in the agenda, until he learns from his parents that his brother, with whom he has long since fallen out, is missing in Donbass. Nikolai sets out to find him, not suspecting that this mission will change his life forever.
