In the childhood town of Tarkovsky, work on the restoration of the postcard church is carried out by previously convicted people, they are no longer hired anywhere. Behind obscene vulgar anecdotes and smoke breaks, the foundation is rather strengthened for the arrival of the comical commission from Moscow. Work is also in full swing on the Volga, cranes and divers are strengthening the dam so that the city does not go under water, like its third, once flooded during the construction of the reservoir, along with its streets and monasteries. At the bottom you can still see the ancient gates, wheels and the remains of the pavement.
