The greatest love story of the USSR, this is how historians now call the marriage of Polina Zhemchuzhina, the first woman minister, and Vyacheslav Molotov, foreign minister, the closest person to Stalin. Love, power, Stalin and the end of a great era, all this in the first film about the most elegant, most daring, most influential woman in the USSR, Polina Zhemchuzhina. Almost all the materials of this story were lost, and the director had to do a lot of research work. For the film adaptation, the genre of "documentary film with artistic reconstruction" was chosen, it is it that helps, on the one hand, to fully experience all the events together with the heroes of the film, and on the other hand, not to lose the documentary nature of the story. The film was based on a historical document, the diary of Polina Zhemchuzhina, which she wrote during her exile in Kazakhstan, partially preserved to our time.
