However, a loud dose of rock music by a teenage garage band revives the arachnid and sends it rampaging through the town.

I am telling you - a spider.

You are scaring me, girl.

Can I come in?

I was just passing by and decided to have a look at the light.

Passing by?

My light is too far away from your temple,

so there's no need for slyness, Father.

Well, if you've showed me the honours...


Yes, with pleasure.

Yea...once you saw the world differently.

World is changing.

We, too.

You are mingling causes with consequences, Albert.

We are changing

and we are deforming the world.

And not in the best way.

It does not concern you, Father.

Each one of us has some guilt. Well, let's drop the subject.

To be honest, I wanted to talk to you about Vita.

I could not grasp what's up with her.

Now much has become clear to me.

In short words - I am bound to withdraw my commission.

Vita won't be sitting for you anymore.

Are you sure?


Dear friend...

I'm listening.

How is your work progressing?

Your models....


...Vita belongs to me until the work is done.

Mom! Mom!

Don't worry. Follow my hand.





With what did your fears begin?

Close your eyes.

Relax yourself.

Remember what did you see.

I saw a spider. Giant spider. He...


Close your eyes once more.

What is in your left hand now?


A star. From glass.

Now we will put a star in right hand, too.

Are you holding it tight? - I am.

Now look.

Nothing. So it happens.

Now go into that room and undress yourself.

Let's have a look at that rash.

I don't understand.

Yesterday there were strange spots. Real bite.

There were no spots yesterday. That's practically no more

than a suggestion.

Daughter suggested her frights into you.

What should we do then, doctor?

It would be good for her to change surroundings.

To take a rest in nature's lap for a week.
