Plot synopsis
In this documentary Russian director Vitali Kanevski takes to the streets of St. Petersburg and Moscow to interview street kids. He is surprised to encounter Pavel Nazarov, an impoverished youth who starred in two of Kanevski's best known films. The director asks his subjects direct questions about their crimes. They are equally direct in their responses. Life on the streets is violent and their crimes range from petty theft to murder. Despite the danger, most of the people interviewed preferred it to traditional work.
