This documentary is a last glimpse of the Soviet Union before the transition to Glasnost. The diary of the filmmaker is used as a narrative device in recalling encounters with a wedding couple, an actress, a class of nine-year-old school children, a "refusnik," and women who survived the siege of Leningrad. Part of the Speaking Our Peace series.
