This documentary interviews Soviet youths from 16 to 20 years of age and captures their disillusioned and cynical attitudes. They reject the ideology of their parents and country, seeking only to have a good time and/or make money. Veterans who fought in the Afghanistan conflict are seen suffering from the same maladies as U.S. soldiers from their experiences in Vietnam. Teens embrace everything from punk-rock music, drugs, and the Hare Krishna religion in their search for purpose and identity.
