Yanka Kupala is one of the spiritual symbols of Belarus. He is the figure that can no longer be defaced from the height of modernity. But addiction to fame, putting on a list of classics leads to stigmatization of a person. The authors of  the film remove this stigmatization – throughout the film we can hear poems. The patriotic ones, which praise Belarus and our people, awaken them from historical apathy and eternal sorrow. The mystical ones, which whisper about the revival of the past, sleeping in the burial mound. And the heart-to-heart ones, filled with hidden grace, eternal sensuality and will to live.
