osta Rica and Russia, what unites these different and distant countries? Former students of Soviet and Russian universities who are now top doctors, architects, journalists, economists and diplomats of Costa Rica recall Russia with gratitude. Russian who found a second homeland in Costa Rica brought they culture across the ocean to this place where the rhythms of the southern seas showed them a different kind of beauty. The interpenetration of the two cultures, peoples and fates, the joy of interacting - this is what the film Russian Costa Rica is about.
