A man of habit confronts a world of transition in his own kitchen.
Manol -- a retired general, a loving grandfather -- is a patriarch of firm morals and fixed beliefs, which he has upheld in his household. But on this day he learns that the boy he raised is gay. The life choices of his loved ones challenge his values in a battle he has lost by default.
PRIDE completes the short film trilogy by Pvalel G. Vesnakov, which also includes TRAINS (17 mins, 2011) and THE PARAFFIN PRINCE (23 mins., 2012). Each film in the trilogy explores the lack of authentic dialogue between generations in contemporary society.
