A British college professor, working in Russia, investigates certain mysteries surrounding the life and death of Joseph Stalin.
Stalin had two sons, one of whom, Yakov, died in German captivity during the Great Patriotic War; the other, Vasilii died of alcoholism in 1962. Yakov's son Evgenii has tried to carry the family torch, much as "Joseph" in the film, with little success. The conceit of the film might be based on the discovery in 2001 of another Stalin grandson, whose father was conceived during Stalin's exile in Siberia before the revolution.
Mr Kelso... I'm totally sick of people like you throwing past in our faces. And I'm sick of people like Mamontov trying to make Gods out of monsters.
Kelso states that Arkhangelsk was founded by Peter the Great, but Arkhangelsk was founded no later than 1584, almost a century before Peter was even born.
