A small family – father and son – lives in a rooftop apartment of an old house. The father is a retired Air Force pilot. Long ago, when he was attending a school for air cadets, he met his first, and only, love – a girl who became his wife and bore him a son. His wife had died young. His son’s physical features constantly remind the father of his wife, he doesn’t separate his son from the love he hasn’t overcome – that is his bond to his beloved. Thus, the father cannot imagine his life without his son, and the son deeply and loyally loves his father. Their love is almost of mythological nature and scale. It cannot happen in real life, it is the collision of a fairy tale… Alexander Sokurov’s film "Father and Son" is the second part of the conceived trilogy about the drama of natural human relationships.
