The smell of the motherland

Authors of the film take on impossible - to tell a story of the big Country through smells, and push for that was an opening by scientists the special genes which are responsible for transfer of smell memory by inheritance. Whether history saves smells? Usually it was considered that does not, because it is impossible to keep that it is impossible to see, pack and include in historical heritage. A smell is unserious, how it has been considered still. In this film through memories of smells, through descriptions of smells the veteran-blockade survivor of Leningrad, emigrants, historians of smells, scientists, the astronaut, perfumers tell about the different periods. In the film we show what could not exist: the smells. The viewer has to feel by a nose all that is shown for his eyes.
