Arkadij and Bazarow, two young students, return to their rural homeland for the summer. Both completely question the current society. Their activism knows only the sole goal of recreating the world. Where is the line between internal revolt and external adaptation, between unconditional and compromise?
“Väter und Söhne” (“Fathers and sons”) is a generation picture and tells of the eternal conflict between young and old, of changing and preserving. What to strive for? And what remains of your own work in the world?
