How can a man hold his pride when a duel is no longer an option? Two men step into the mountain to find a place to duel. Across the river with fishing people, beyond the forest of conifer trees, they go all the way just to clarify... Although depicting a 'tense' battle of ego between two men who fight in an old-fashioned style and all of their seriousness, there is an air of happy-go-luckiness during the battle and somehow heart-warming atmosphere at the end.

Before film school, she was filming a lot with her digital camcorder, and made her first documentary “The Orange” (“Apelsin", in Russian), which won the special prize at the Message to Man Film Festival 2002 (St. Petersburg) and the 2nd Prize at the St. Anna Film Festival 2003 (Moscow). Documentary is her passion, and even though most of her current projects are narratives, she is always thinking of just taking her camera to fields and capturing people's life as it is.
