At the heart of the film are two of the greatest works of Russian genius: Nikolai Gogol’s story “The Nose” and the opera “The Nose”, created in 1930 by the composer Dmitri Shostakovich. The film is devoted to the pioneers and innovators in art, to people who advanced time, and – most important – were fearless enough to swim against the current. At the cost of their own wellbeing, and often their lives. The main characters of the film are the writers Nikolai Gogol and Mikhail Bulgakov, the director Vsevolod Meyerhold, and the composer Dmitri Shostakovich.
