Kholodnoe leto pyatdesyat tretego 1987
Shortly after Joseph Stalin’s death in 1953, Lavrenty Beria, the omnipotent NKVD Minister, granted a broad amnesty. Many prisoners (some political, but mostly hardened criminals) were released from the Soviet Gulags.
This is the story of a remote settlement which was under attack by a bunch of these recently-released blood-thirsty thugs in the summer of 1953, and the townspeople, along with a two political prisoners, who try to stop them.

The great Russian actor Anatoly Papanov played his last role (Kopalych) in this film.
