Aleksey Chistikov is to direct the film. “This is a family saga featuring two protagonists, brothers Ivan and Aleksandr Nazarov, the director comments, - Aleksandr is an intelligent and well-read person getting ready for university admission; while Ivan is a neighborhood kid having no idea what to do in his life.”

The story begins in 2000s when the Nazarov family leaves a small town of Pervomaysk for Moscow in search for better life. Pyotr Nazarov, a householder, invests all his money to launch his appliance shop at a large market. The family life seems to be improving but the shop is robbed. It leads Pyotr to commit a suicide, and the boys’ mother goes mad having no strength to overcome this tragedy.

The brothers understand that the robbery wasn’t accidental, and now they set on planning revenge, both choosing opposite tactics. Ivan decides to intrude into a criminal world, find the people to blame for his father’s death, and kill them one by one. Aleksandr plans to become a lawyer to legally struggle against crimes and injustice.

Not only have these tactics brought the brothers to opposite sides of the fight field, but also that they fall in love with the same women and overcome their friends’ and fellows’ betrayals. But no matter what in their hardest and crucial moments the brothers understand that family ties is the only thing left and don’t hesitate to come to aid each other.

A Matter of Honor will be shot in Moscow to be completed in August.
