It is the film about the film «12» directed by Nikita Mikhalkov. The man has difficult destiny, attitude, and at the same time he is silly, slovenly in a common person’s view. He is the 13th – he is inside each of us and pick up the pieces from each of 12. And it is difficult for them too, because it is necessary to get on somehow with other characters and to act together, not only in front of cameras, but also out of a lens… Shootings of the feature film is the most laborious process of coauthorship which witnesses are only participants of. This film in a genre about the film gives the chance to other people to see this process yet. This film tells how the cinema is born.
