A melodramatic story about the search of love, proposed by Ivan Vyrypaev, illustrates the modern model of relations.
Today, when knowledge of everything is available, people acquire it without personal experience, existing in dry theories, inability to hear others and inner devastation, because cocaine, alcohol and soulless reflections on Buddhist emptiness don’t give heroes the happiness, they are waiting for. They wait, but do nothing to give this happiness to those who are close to them.

Often he talks to her and refuses to believe in what happened … Being in the shackles of his affection, she leads him to the idea that all his suffering is caused by the fact that he did not really loved her, that is why he is unhappy After all, “happiness is a work that by all means, we need to do well”.
