The new generation of Russia stuck between the old Soviet tradition and the new corruption
The face of Russia as it was in the 80's. The image of the young generation through the face of gloomy regime. Love story of 2 young people is stuck between the old norms of Soviet union and the new rising power of organized mafia, two ingredients which will affect the collapse of the 70 years socialist power. The young generation demand changes, and immediately but it's being suffocated by both sides of the old order, and the movie ends with legendary Viktor Tsoi's song "Changes" which became an anthem after Tsoi's tragic death in a car accident. A Parallel story in the movie is the murder of Russia's emperor on 12th March of 1801 which is probably a metaphor of constant corruption in Russia.
