CAIN XVIII, or beware of the mosquito!

In one kingdom news are spreading very quickly and not because of spies, but rather through the Internet. The story about a young and beautiful princess, a poor actor, an old but rich king who lives in the era of nanotechnology and is not afraid of anything other than leakage of information and atomic mosquito. A fairytale for children and their parents.

“Of course, this is a fairytale about the struggle of good and evil”. And the evil is not abstract. “There are two storylines: the first is the theme of love: the tyrant king drove a princess from a neighboring kingdom, for which Yan is struggling, traveling musician. He is in love with the princess… The second is a story with a nuclear mosquito. Unfortunately, the theme with a nuclear mosquito is still of current interest, because tyrants were and are, who decide, that they can conquer the world and impose their culture by force”, – director Vladimir Kudlinskyy.
