The Dry Valley is based on the famous novel written by Nobel Prize laureate Ivan Bunin.The story takes place in Dry Valley, a village owned by the noble family of Khrushevs. Natalia, a young and naive peasant girl, works as servant in their country house. We see and share her love and dedication to her masters, mystical experiences, exile, betrayal and faith, which come one after another, while the Dry Valley is falling to pieces, slowly but inevitably, as well as the lives of its inhabitants.
