The Postman's White Nights is centered around the true story of Aleksey Tryaptisyn, a real-life postman based in a remote Russian village near Lake Kenozero.


Separated from the outside world with only a boat to connect their remote village to the mainland, the inhabitants of Kenozero Lake live the way their ancestors did for centuries gone by: the community is small, everyone knows each other and they produce only those things which are necessary for survival. The village postman (Aleksey Tryaptisyn) is their sole connection to the outside world, relying on his motorboat to bridge the two civilizations. But when his boat’s motor is stolen and the woman he loves escapes to the city, the Postman follows, desperate for a new adventure and a new life. Winner of Silver Lion (Best Director) at Venice Film Festival.
