    Двое немолодых бездетных ученых подошли к кризису семейной жизни. Он – филолог, редактор толстого литературного журнала – влюбился в молодую сотрудницу. Она – преподаватель математической логики в вузе – отпускает его без внешних эмоций. Но он не может так просто уйти, ему не хватает её тонкого, точного ума, интеллектуальных, хлестких разговоров.

But in the Soviet society, women remained just as marginalised – only that now they were expected to provide labour along with their patriarchal roles…
