According to Hamlet Dulian, who is the director of the film, he decided to coincide with the premiere of the centenary of the book of E. Zametin. The work “We” is a classic dystopia that inspired George Orwell, Aldous Huxley and many other writers to create their own masterpieces.


The Great War ended two centuries ago, leaving behind a handful of surviving people, a miserable part of the population that once lived on the surface of the Earth. Now there is no division into countries - the society is united into a perfect One State. Authoritarianism reigns in the social system; people have no names - they are replaced by serial numbers. Each person has a uniform, a house with glass walls and scheduled sex. All are happy and live, as expected, in harmony with themselves and power.

The engineer D-503 has an ideal life, he is no different from his fellow citizens. He is engaged in the creation of a powerful spaceship, and puts all his soul and knowledge into its construction. After a chance meeting with an I-330 woman, all his ideas about life and himself are turned over. Suddenly, he realizes that he is unable to control his feelings and passions, which, it would seem, were peculiar only to "ancient people." He learns one more thing - not everyone is satisfied with the existing order, and many seek the destruction of the One State.
