This documentary explores the life of a 23-year-old Moscow drug addict and his erstwhile community, from fellow addicts to the authorities who try, haphazardly, to reform him. Other than the surprising fact that it was allowed to be released, it offers few fresh insights into this perennial problem. At the time, Soviet Russia was, not unsurprisingly, unwilling to admit the existence of these problems.
