Perestroika has already stepped from the Kremlin stands onto the streets of cities and towns. The Soviet Union is dying before our eyes, and along with a premonition of change, freedom of speech, music and prices, freedom from conscience appears, bordering on lawlessness. While the parents are fighting for survival, the children abandoned by everyone stray into street flocks and “fight for the asphalt.” They literally fight to control everything that stands on their land or moves on it. Among the general poverty and loss of the adult generation, in youth groups there are clear rules of life, support and the word of a guy, which is stronger than an oath. But friendship and concepts of justice are increasingly mixed with violence and crime. Against this crucial historical background, the series shows the growing up and transformation of the schoolboy Andrey from a simple chushpan (as teenagers who were not “sewn” to any group were called) into a cruel kid.
