The City of the Sun: stories of three completely different people, who are trying to find their place and their mission in this world. Each of them tries to change something in their city and in the world. And each of them has his own way to achieve the dream: music, prominent political actions or scandalous behaviour. They are ready to do everything just to fill the life of people with love and happiness. They are the authentic heroes of our time. St. Petersburg is a fairy-tale city, museum city, dream city… But when the heroes wake up they see the reality. Deserted backyards, hunger, poverty, anger and indifference smash their dream. And it is very painful.
