In 1999, the famous Soviet actress Tatiana Kirillovna Okunevskaya celebrated her 85th birthday.
Her fate can hardly be called happy or unhappy - her tragedy and love, ups and downs have merged so tightly.
Her life is a section of time in which almost all of our history was imprinted.
She comes from a noble family, so her loved ones did not escape the terrible fate that many in this country had in the 1930s.
She herself started acting early.
After the success of Mikhail Romm's film "The Dust", the proposals fell one after another.
She became a star, she had fans.
The first early marriage was unsuccessful.
The second time she married a well-known proletarian writer Boris Gorbatov, with whom, along with the concert brigades, went to the front during the war.
But even the future winner of the Stalin Prize could not save her from being arrested in 1948.
Six years the actress spent in the camps, and she only miraculously managed to stay alive.
Returning to Moscow, she was left alone - her husband, officially refused her, died, other people lived in the apartment, her grown-up daughter already had her own family.
There was no starry acting career, they had to leave the theater, they practically did not shoot it in the cinema.
But despite all this, she did not shut herself up and lost a surprising female charm and beauty.
She continues to live a full life, writes books and hopes that when her three great-grandchildren grow up, they will be interested in learning about the incredible events of her life.
