Talented Moscow director Yulia Belyayeva enthusiastically took up production and combined separate short stories into the narrative of a big family, which was close-knit once. The narrative is told by characters resembling Chekhov’s Prozorov Sisters – Olga, Masha, and Irina.

Married sisters, who live away from one another, come to the old parental home to say their goodbyes before the house is sold… Nostalgic memories of their childhood and youth come to mind: these are family legends and mythical stories, some fascinating, some funny, and some sad. The play is based on the short stories “Shurochka,” “The Small Terrace,” “The Worry,” “The Reflection,” “The New Year Smell of a Silvery Lilly of the Valley,” and “Mystery of the Old House.”
