Song From The Southern Seas

Feature Film

Ivan is Russian and his neighbour Assan is Kazakh. They live next door to each other in a small Kazakh Village. When Ivan` s wife gives birth to a “brown” boy, Ivan suspects that she has been cheating on him with Assan. This conflict remains between the families over the years to come. Father and son similarly agonise over their alienation from one another. Meanwhile the disheartened Assan withdraws further and further. From the director of My Brother Silk Road
