Bartholomew “Barley” Scott Blair, a middle-aged and heavy-drinking head of a modest family-owned British publishing company, regularly attends book sales fairs in Moscow. On one such occasion, business friends cajole him into joining them on a drunken retreat to a dacha in the Moscow woods near Peredelkino. Discussion turns to politics, and Barley finds himself talking boldly of patriotism and courage, of a New World Order (this prior to the break-up of the Soviet Union), and an end to Cold-War tensions. One attentive listener (“Goethe” in the book, “Dante” in the film) asks him privately whether he truly believes in the possibility of such a world. Barley convincingly says that he does.
