Synopsis

A lonely old lady (Yelena Susanina) lives by a big road. The only other sign of life is a store next to her house. At times, truck drivers stop at the store to buy vodka which they come and drink and the old lady’s place. She hosts them and cleans up after them, but her only companion is a chicken whom she carries along everywhere and who sleeps in her bed.

The chicken gets eaten by drunken truckers. The store is closed down. The power supply stops. The old lady starts dreaming of a pig and tries to obtain one. Not for food, for companionship, for there to be some life in the empty house and the derelict place.

“Kerosene” is a melancholy story about loneliness, life dying out in the country, human cruelty, and a lonely old woman. It also tells about those who are always going somewhere and past something, always on the way.

Awards from Kinotavr and Vyborg film festivals in Russia.
