A documentary film which recounts the lives of passengers travelling on the longest railway route in the world: ordinary Russians who met by chance on the Moscow-Vladivostok train. The endless journey is a metaphor of the country in perpetual motion, and gives a striking portrait of contemporary Russian society.
