Mikhail Voropayev is a respected retired man. He lives alone in his country house where a while ago lived his whole big family: his wife, the eldest daughter Lucy, middle son Igor and the youngest son Sergey. Mikhail’s wife passed away ten years ago and his children had left the family nest long time before.
One day both sons with their wives come to see their dad for his 67-th Birthday. At the party Mikhail accidentally finds out that two brothers have been at odds with each other for a long time already, pretending good relationship for their father’s sake. Through tricks and cunnings Mikhail keeps his negligent sons together at the family mansion, tries to figure out the cause of their conflict and struggles to reconcile them by any means (sometimes extraordinary ones). And at the same time to understand whether it is his fault.
