The film is based on the diaries of Natalia Alexandrovna Ivanova, a woman descending from a noble Russian family who at the time resided in Petrograd. The diaries describe the events of February-June of 1917. In the film, we want to shed light on this specific period as we are convinced it was then that the stage was set for the empowerment of the Bolsheviks.
Courtesans - this word still has some magic behind it. Who were they? Why and how did these women drive men mad? The film will try to answer some of these questions and to analyze the personality of Cora Pearl (whose real name was Emma Elizabeth Crouch), one of 19-th century Europe's most prominent courtesans.
