The documentary series "Pentagons" portrays the poorest inhabitants of Russia, individuals who have entered an unspoken agreement with the state: you don't interfere with us, and we won't interfere with you. But then, the war began...

An unflinching portrayal of families divided by war. The film features seven different pairings, whose members speak periodically with Loshak, one-to-one, to explain their points of view. Their conversations extend over the war's first three months, during which time their opinions evidence no change. The director makes no attempt at establishing dialogue – on the contrary, it is a testimony to the absence of dialogue amidst an unfolding war, and an unsentimental diagnosis of the sickness of a society in which official propaganda proves stronger than even the most intimate family ties.

In 1790, Alexander Radishchev published the book "Journey from St. Petersburg to Moscow", in which he fearlessly exposed the vices of his time, more precisely despotism, corruption, poverty and lawlessness of the people. For his freethinking, the writer was sentenced to death, which, by the monarch's mercy, was replaced by a 10-year exile to Siberia. The film crew decided to repeat Radishchev's route and see how people live today on the side of the federal highway M10 "Russia", which connects the two capitals. How has Russian life changed over the past two hundred years? Have we started to live better? Richer? Freer? The answer is in the documentary road-movie "Travel from St. Petersburg to Moscow: a special way". Chapter 4 (which we bring to your attention) is devoted to the city of Torzhok.
