The early years in the life of the great Russian figure Maxim Gorky are recounted in this film, part one of a trilogy. When little Alexei Peshkov (Gorky's real name) arrives with his mother in her home town, he finds himself part of a large family, desperately poor and dominated by his brutal grandfather and long-suffering grandmother. Followed by 'My Apprenticeship' and 'My Universities'. Mark Donskoi directs.
