Synopsis

It is February 19. The train will depart with Anna and Alex. Years have passed; the day has come for their last meeting. Location: the train. City: Yerevan. She is there – in the train. He enters – and the white thin wall becomes a cold white barrier between them. They will talk, shout, cry, whisper and make love. The dull thin wall remains.
