Ailing Angel

Film

Love is longer than life, memory is stronger than death.

The former orphan Tolya Kovrigin by nickname Chukhna is 18 years old. He and his friends Kostya Sinyavy and Volodya Shkilet share the same room at Vasilyevsky Island in the most beautiful city of the Earth - Leningrad.

Sinyavy enjoys life's pleasures and flirts with the girls calling them "pretty kitty." Shkilet writes poetry and dreams to get into the Military Academy. They hang out, drink wine, argue, are jealous, dance foxtrots, believe in happy future and ignore all signs of the upcoming catastrophe. White Nights of the late spring of 1940 are outside. The world is on the brink of war. And Chukhna meets the love of his life - Lyolya.

Ahead there will be the front, blockade, death of the dearest and inevitable maturing growing up. And now they are young and careless. They are happy; they won't be happier ever anymore. In a quarter of the century, it turns out that far youth events have the surprising power over them and keep the secrets.
