My documents.

Take it.

Be careful, Lieutenant.

There's a lot of theft on the trains.

What about your bride?

Dis you meet her?


- What is your name?

- Georgy.

You see... have a name.

But I lost my name there.

And my bride too.

Since then...

...I've lived without a name.

Get it?


- I need diesel.


Old man!

Old man!

Been parked here long?


- Do you know what happened up there?

- Think you're special?

Go and wait like everyone else.

He's in a rush, the arsehole!

Want some fun?

- How old are you?

- 18.

- Why aren't you in school?

- It's vacation.

Right, vacation.

- What's happened up there?

- An accident. They often happen here.

The police haven't got here yet.

I see.

- Hey, Tricks! Come here.

- The girl's with me!

Chill out, wise guy.

- But no fantasies.

- What's that?

Only the classics,

nothing perverted.

Oh, I see.

Want something to eat?

- To eat?

- To eat. The classics:

Coffee and sandwiches.

All right.

It's going to take a while.

A truck rollled over.

They're still tidying up.

Is there another way around?

There's a dirt track,

but it's a long one.

And the way is rotten.

You mean swamps?

No, the swamps were drained long ago.

Grandma said it's cursed.

And here isn't cursed?

I don't know.

Your girlfriends?

There's no friendship here.

- Can I smoke?

- Smoke away.

- Do you live with your grandma?

- My grandma died a long time ago.

You live by yourself?

- Are you trying to invite yourself round?

- No, I'm just asking.

I live with my Mama.

- And what does your mama do?

- Nothing.

- What do you mean, nothing?

- I mean, nothing.

Are we going to keep talking

or get going?

There's a place we can go.

The woods there are full of condoms.

By the way, do you have one...
