Evgeniy started writing fake letters since he was 6 when he tried writing one to his imaginary friend. Throughout his lifetime, he has accumulated a letter from every country, except New Zealand. He writes a letter to a seemingly fake person in a seemingly fake city in New Zealand. After 4 weeks, he receives a letter back from the fake person stating that Evgeniy and the person have in fact met in real life. A lieutenant comes and searches his house to find a secret code hidden among the envelopes. Evgeniy is shocked and the lieutenant travels with him to board a plane later on. While Evgeniy and the lieutenant are traveling, Tanya (Evgeniy's wife) finds a letter in which the person from New Zealand proves to be true and states that Evgeniy will die in a plane. Written by
