A man travels from Moscow to Yalta at the speed of light. A writer burns his novel. A woman goes to hell and back to save her lover. All the while, Pontius Pilate argues with Jesus about the nature of human worth.

The enigmas that bind Bulgakov’s violent, poetic maelstrom of a novel are one reason he is hailed as Russia’s greatest 20th Century novelist.

The graffiti that lines the walls, and the young men and women who haunt the stairwell to Bulgakov's flat in Moscow to this day are testimony to the fact that this work remains timeless, prescient and present.
