Plot synopsis
Social melodrama. A common incident, a story of an 18-year-old guy, who fell in love with an older girl — and killed her, when he understood that she did not love him and wanted to die… Man, love, death, freedom — these are the topics of the movie which continues observations of the life of the lower strata of society, started in «Cold March»… Life cannot fail to be wonderful even nearing the Apocalypses. Perhaps then it seems especially beautiful.
