The story of a young man experiencing an existential journey. It is not about the other characters per se, but rather, what these characters bring to Mitya's experience. Mitya's experience is in contrast to what is going on around him in the physical sense.
a film about the unique golden age. in Soviet atmosphere of a scud camp. tension, dialogues, feelings, frustration. and the delicacy to use each as part of a large puzzle. a film of nostalgic memories more than a story. because it is testimony about a lost period who remains refuge, axis and motivation across life. because it represents a beautiful reflection/exploration of simple small details who remain out of words. because it is a beautiful portrait of growing up. in a summer. in a scud camp. in the clash of feelings and powerful need to be yourself. so, nostalgic isles. and the return in the air of the last days of childhood.
