Summary
Shot two years prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union, this program emulates the 7 Up documentary model in which a group of children reveal their thoughts and feelings on camera. The Russian participants introduced here include Anton, a Moscow boy who precociously foreshadows a coup in his nation's political future; twins Stas and Dennis who live in an industrial suburb of Leningrad, now St Petersburg; Asya, also a Leningrad citizen, who shares a small apartment with her mother and grandparents; Tanya, who laments the lack of retail choices in her country and whose mouth waters, almost literally, over a Western mail-order catalog; Almaz, who lives in a factory workers' hostel in the capital of Kyrgyzstan; Rita, who dwells on the shore of the largest freshwater lake in the world; and Andrei, who resides in a children's home in Siberia
