The emigrants and emigration have been and probably always will be an integral part of any political regime, the regime of government.
This process shows the interpenetration of ethnic groups, cultures, traditions, problems, which obviously can not be resolved, being permanently confined to one land, the country, one city and way.

Moreover, in a global context.
The film "Adrift" is not trying to understand and explain the origins and consequences of Russian emigration as a whole.
We just show the lives of some Russian emigres living in a small town in Florida.

We live in a rather difficult, perhaps even cruel, when the thought of some people are searching for "daily bread" and other multiplication of wealth, race for which is converted into the purpose of life.
We have less and less leave the boundaries of this busy world: almost do not read serious literature, do not think about the higher meaning of life, and most importantly - have long forgotten how to dream.
But, thank God, we still live among people who continue to think in images, and not only in the usual areas such as art and literature.
It turns out that you can think imaginatively and creating mechanical design - sophisticated clocks, calendars or just mechanisms, which have no analogues in the age of space velocities and chips.
This film - a portrait of a highly superior man, combining mechanics and philosopher, artist and craftsman.
In this sense, our hero is continuing the traditions of Leonardo, Raymond Lull, Albert the Great, James Bruce ...
Without people like Victor Molchanov our world would have lost some of its color and much of its meaning.
