There is neither living nor dead Lenin in the film; only “the stone guest” become ingrained in Soviet people lives after his death. The "birth" of each new stone Lenin is accompanied by a special ritual with speeches and festivities before a vast assembly. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the life cycle of the "stone guest" is coming to the end.

On the other side of the order, which regardless of the ideological origin has so far been marked by the patriarchy, the fragmented experience of the woman and her broken body will follow the other, a new and interrupted story.
