Adapted from a short story by his father, independent filmmaker, Arshak Amirbekyan, presents Three Evenings, a film made with an incredibly low budget and a storytelling that will not resort to sex, violence, or suspense. Accompanied by existentialistic music of Eric Sati and Claude Debussy, a simple story will unfold about the complications of loneliness, betrayal, and the compassionate bond between two strangers.

Simon, rather an ordinary Soviet scientist, an ornithologist humbly lives his ordinary Soviet life filled with heart exhausting and well organized solitude. But something promises to change when a strange woman with a drama of her own enters his life.

As they meet for the first time, it turns out that she has been following her husband, who was having an affair with a woman of bad reputation, who happened to be Simon's neighbor and was too frequently having crazy parties at her basement apartment right bellow Simon's home.

For the second time they meet on a cold rainy evening several days later. Simon sees her standing alone and disheartened: she is on watch again, although there is no use in it any more as she confesses. Simon feels he has to invite her in to warm up and have a rest. They talk, they get cordial, and compassion grows into affection as her story begins to unfold, accompanied with the sounds of yet another crazy party which was going on in the basement apartment. And her heartbreak gets even worse as they hear the sounds of the flute, played by her husband and repeatedly interrupted by the wild shouts of drunken guests?

Then few days later she comes to see Simon for the third time...
