According to a release, Black Snow "follows the story of Sergei Maxudov, a writer whose dream of being a famous novelist turns into a nightmare. Excited that his novel is to be presented as a play at the Theater of Moscow, Maxudov discovers to his horror that he and his work are under the control of the eccentric theatre management and realizes the hypocrisy and frustration that go into producing a true artistic piece."
