THE BASIS OF LIFE
Hard times of the early 90s bring a lot of changes in the Savchuks’ life. First, twenty-year-old Sasha, Stepan and Maria’s younger son, quit the plant he worked at. The firm he starts working in is involved in a series of burglaries.
This case is investigated by Sasha’s brother Pavel. The brothers’ relationship is extremely bad, but not because of the burglaries — Sasha is not an accomplice in these affairs. The reason is that a nurse from the plant, Oksana, with whom Sasha has been long in love, is Pavel’s fiancee. At the same time, Maria suffers from asthma aggravation.
The whole family moves out of the city, as the doctor recommended. In the province, seeing people trading various
trifles at the bus station, Sasha decides to open a normal market, though it turns out this is not that easy. Sasha and
his family are going to go through a lot of challenges since they live in hard period of life.
