Special prize winner at the 15th Moscow Film Festival, Shakhnazarov’s witty comedy, a Russian equivalent of The Breakfast Club, follows teenager Ivan Miroshnikov, who dealing with his parents’ divorce and failing to make it into university, get a job as a delivery boy. He is ironic, careless, provocative. He meets Adidas clad Katya, daughter of a famous professor. He falls for her. They start to date but his interest in her fades when he realises she isn’t really a rebel. He returns to his old friends, and the certainty of being called up for the draft.
