“New Russian Serial”


Aleksandr Kapitsa




Based on Dmitri Veresov’s novel Black Raven

The first 52 episodes of the series is an epic 40-year long story about two women, both named Tatiana. They have same father, but do not know about one another. The mysterious ways of fate are leading them toward the same places and persons, but they never meet. This film is an artful mix of drama, detective, comedy and mystic occurrences.

Beginning with episode 35, the series is set in the mid-1990s. Almost 5 years have passed since the events depicted in episode 52. Life has changed radically. The rapidly changing reality brings all the central characters together in absolutely unpredictable combinations. Former enemies become business partners, some of the characters undergo personality changes, and some rise to the heights of power.
