The main role of the priest’s daughter, who renounced her father and became an employee of the NKVD, was played by actress Maria Lugovaya. According to the plot, during the Great Patriotic War, she must deliver a miraculous icon to Moscow from a town occupied by the Germans in order to fly around the capital with the shrine by plane. She receives the task from her boss, played by Sergei Puskepalis.

“We worked with him for fifteen years. Sergei starred in almost every of my films, played both major and very small roles, but it was always bright, with full dedication and creative complicity,” recalled Storozheva.

According to her, Puskepalis took a small role in the film “Maria. Save Moscow” very seriously.

“When the picture had to be presented, to participate in promotions, it was he who went with me to radio, television, went to festivals, and this despite his enormous employment. At a time when the performers of the main roles refused for various reasons. He did not lie neither in life nor on the screen. And this is a special case when fame has not distorted human nature, “the director shared.
