Plot synopsis
Twenty-three-years-old Kostya is working as an assistant of a machinist in the subway. One day he goes for a check-up and the doctor diagnoses Kostya that he has a weak heart and says that he has to radically change his lifestyle and his job. Kostya decides not to tell anyone about his sickness. Deep inside, however, he re-examines the life he has led until now, and realizes that his mother is his only source of stability. He doesn’t really know how to relate to other people, nor does he know where his relationship with his girlfriend is going. He is trying to live his life as usual, but instead starts to think more and more about the true meaning of life. Meanwhile, hypnotic shots of the trains rumbling through the tunnels seem to reflect the mental state of a man forced by necessity to take his life into his own hands. (
