Directed by Arseny Gonchukov


1210 is a piercing story of an ordinary man in pursuit of justice.

Nikolai Baranov is a retired officer and a veteran of the now forgotten Soviet war in Afghanistan. His son, a soldier in Nikolai’s unit, was killed in the Afghan war. And Nikolai still blames himself for his death.

On the anniversary of his son’s death, Nikolai learns that an anticipated increase in his veteran’s pension, one thousand two hundred and ten roubles, is cancelled.

Feelings of offended dignity, guilt and growing despair push Nikolai to a terrible act.
