The Caucasian Chalk Circle - A New Version archiveWhen the Governor's Wife abandons her baby in her haste to keep her collection of dresses, Grusha, the humble kitchen maid, saves the child from death and faces danger and adversity to protect him. A drunken village clerk, Azdak, is made judge by accident and tries her case. An epic and compelling morality tale of possession and rights. In a refugee camp, a fight breaks out over lost land. To seek resolution, a singer tells the fable of ‘The Chalk Circle': in the midst of a bloody revolution, a servant girl risks all to raise the abandoned child of the Governor and his wife. Years later, when the Governor's wife returns seeking her son, a rogue judge turns justice on its head. Can the test of the Chalk Circle determine which of the two women is the boy's real mother?
