Artyom

Tell Mom I'll come over in 2 weeks.

I just can't right now.

Alright.

I'm going to Leningrad.

I have to do something

before the semester starts.

You seem worn out.

Something up at university?

No, same as always.

They're always bickering.

Is everyone all right at home?

Yes, thank God.

You started believing in God?

There goes your niece with her fianc.

How's your Slava?

I haven't seen him for ages.

Last time I was at your place

he was at some holiday camp.

He worries me.

They're different from us.

I don't understand him.

We work hard.

He gets everything he needs.

But he doesn't respect us.

Despises us even.

I forced him into school so he

wouldn't get sent to Afghanistan.

You think he studies?

No! Just "hangs out" all day.

- You know that phrase?

- Yes.

Underground concerts. Rock.

Every day I'm waiting for

a call from the police.

Look at his last photo.

Not bad!

All my life I've done

what I was supposed to.

But nobody needs that now.

I'm not needed.

I'm not old, but I know

something's gone.

and I don't understand

what's coming.

When Andropov died,

everyone started stirring.

In our Faculty and the

Scientific Communism Faculty

That's not to even

mention the students.

Hello, Uncle Artyom.

- Hi, Liza.

- Hello.

I haven't seen you for

Are you staying long?

No, I'll be off soon to visit

your grandmother.

How's my cousin Slava?

Always hanging out.

This is my friend, Valera.

Valera Buadze - half Georgian,

though I've never been there.

Kazakov, Artyom Nikolaevich,

from Leningrad.

Dad, we'll have a quick

cup of tea in the kitchen.

I have to get up early,

and I still have to get ready.

He's really her fianc?

Of course not. I was kidding.

But I think she likes him.

He's not a bad kid. No dummy.

He works up north every year and

comes back with good money.

I'm a high-ranking colonel and

he makes 3 times what I do.

He's just a kid with his own car.

And not a car like yours.

You see,

it's not that simple here, Artyom.

- So he doesn't study?

- No.

Why isn't he in the army?

He's not from around here.

He lives with some grandmom.

I help him.

You know what's happening

in Afghanistan now.

They've already brought back

Artyom, 26!

It's called Cargo 200.

Imagine the rest of the country...

Just watch out, Mikhail.

Cargo 200

So, who's your uncle?

Head of the Scientific Atheism

Faculty at Leningrad University.

Right.

He helped me enroll last year.

Are we going to the disco?

I said I wanted to get some

sleep and get ready.

You said the sooner we leave,

the sooner we'll get there.

And the guys will

be coming at 6:
30.

We won't go for long.

Valera, no!

Well, it's up to you.

You should get some sleep too.

You have to drive.

It's a long way, and

you said the road's bad.

Don't worry about me.

I've been on worse roads.

Thanks for Liza.

Come on-- Liza's a smart girl.

She'd have gotten in anyway.

Where's she going so early?

To Yara.

Her friend's got a dacha there.

A group of them are going there

to swim and pick mushrooms.

They're a good bunch.

It's just for a couple of days.

I could pick her up on the way

back to Leningrad.

She'll manage on the bus.

Alright. I'll call you from

Mom's when I'm leaving.

Thanks for the food.

It's getting harder to

find it around here.

Is anything left for Mom?

Yes, I filled up 2 bags.

Well... I'm off.

Hi, Valera.

- Hi.

- Where's Liza?

Liza? She went to bed early.

We're leaving early tomorrow.

Don't you recognize me?

It's me, Angelica,

Liza's friend!

We're going
