The play con­sists of three parts. 
The first is "Dis­pu­te". It is abo­ut pe­asants who are as­king the fa­mo­us qu­es­ti­on: “Who li­ves fun and fre­ely in Rus­sia?”. What for­ced them to gi­ve up ho­mes and fa­mili­es and hit the ro­ad? Whe­re are the bo­un­da­ri­es of "Rus­si­an world"? What pre­vents them from fin­ding long-awa­ited fre­edom? 
The se­cond part of pro­duc­ti­on is "Drun­ken Night". Drun­ken pe­asants wan­der in the fi­elds; they are he­aring vo­ices that are cal­ling for them. Is it re­al, or the phan­toms of a sick ima­gina­ti­on? The third part is "The Fe­ast for All the World”. It is abo­ut hap­py pe­op­le, abo­ut "the ke­ys to fe­male hap­pi­ness", abo­ut de­fen­ders and bles­sed... Ki­rill Se­reb­renni­kov, di­rec­tor: 
“Nek­ra­sov has ma­de up “na­ti­onal po­em lan­gu­age”. It is the first ti­me af­ter Push­kin when wri­ter has in­vented his own re­cog­ni­zab­le uni­que ver­se. The po­em was writ­ten when self­dom had al­re­ady be­en can­celled in Rus­sia. This work is abo­ut im­possi­bili­ty of get­ting fre­edom and con­ve­ni­en­ce of ha­bitu­al sla­very. 
To wri­te the­se li­nes it is vi­tal to lo­ve and cle­ar­ly un­ders­tand your co­unt­ry: 
«You are as ne­edy as abun­dant, and as migh­ty as po­wer­less, Mot­her Rus­sia!»
The pre­mi­ere oc­curred on 15 Sep­tember 2015.
