A historical drama that illustrates Russian author Leo Tolstoy's struggle to balance fame and wealth with his commitment to a life devoid of material things.
In reality, Countess Sofya bore Tolstoy 13 children and copied out six drafts of his novel "War and Peace" - by hand.
It doesn't matter. If my heart stopped beating, I'd still go riding today.
Dushan: Your pulse is my responsibility.
Leo Tolstoy: No. It's mine.
Dushan: Fine. If you must ride, I insist you wear a coat. Even the sun is cold today.
When Sofya is looking into Leo Tolstoy's diary it is written in modern Russian orthography which was not used at that time.
