It is sometimes sad, sometimes fun portrait of the provincial militiaman. A daily life of Russian country depths is background. Small town. All inhabitants are familiar between each other. He should execute literally the law, but it will be out of interests of a society, that is, out of interests of our hero. Because in fact he is bone of the bone and flesh of the flesh of that society in which he lives. In most cases the captain tries to act “humanly”. He understands that he is not angel himself. But other keepers of the laws couldn’t fit here yet.

This film is made from the video materials of the archaeographic expedition of the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov (July, 1999) to village Sepych of the Perm region. The heroine of the film Maria Savelevna Maltseva spins belts since ten years, picked up it “by guess-work from mum”. The belt it’s not only amulet usual for many cultures, but the major part of clothes of Old Believers, mark of their religion too. The belt should be hand weaved with woolen or cotton strings or weaved by topki, like in the film. To see, to catch the change of human nature and heart, because of living with canons of traditional culture, by the help of camera and to transfer this sensation to spectators – that is main target of film makers.
