Young bachelor Marat lives on his own. He works as a security guard. He leads a lonely life but does not change his boring daily routine. However, one day some unexpected event takes place. Marat sees a young girl standing in the street, next to his house. Her name is Maryam and when she enters Marat’s life by chance his nights become adventurous. “Adventure” is the free adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s novel “White Nights”.
“Dostoyevsky is a very modern author; in fact his style can be suited to all times and places… And there are no boundaries when you write about love. This is my first experience of adapting a literary work for cinema. I might do it again. I liked it very much”. Nariman Turebayev
