It seems to me that we must have faith, or must search for it, or life will be empty. To live and not know why the cranes fly, why babies are born, why there are stars in the sky. Either you must know why you live, or it's all nonsense. Dust in the wind!

A year after the death of their father, an army officer, three Moscow-bred sisters Olga, Masha and Irina, are finding life drab and increasingly hopeless in a backwater provincial town. Only the proximity of a nearby army base and the company of its officers make their existence bearable. This classic story of what they make of their circumstances is a powerful and moving study of ordinary lives.
