This is the fate of a huge man, a talented, as well as extraordinary interesting. Every his step could be the last: every step in life, career, in building of himself and the country. And this is metaphysical significance of his way, his destiny. There is some kind of religious feeling, because otherwise how the stars aligned in this way cannot be explained.

This is not a documentary about the life of the first President of Kazakhstan. It is still an artistic image, in which the talented director and screenwriter tried to collect these connecting qualities of the leader.
