You Are with Me

user
Director: Andrey Khvostov.
A small airport somewhere in a Russian province. The only flight today is just about to arrive. It is nothing special for anyone, except her. Today he is coming back. He left four years ago for his military service, but ended up going through a real war. He hasn’t changed – but a scar on his face suggests a different story. She is diligently dressed-up, with a bouquet of white lilies. She wants everything to be perfect today. Her apartment. They are quietly talking over a glass of wine, scared to waste the emotions they endured to make this moment almost perfect. He cannot believe that she has kept waiting. She cannot show how hard it has really been. Her closest ones declared her insane, and she had to pretend that she had forgotten him. But this isn’t the reality! Maybe it is, but only for them! “And, as for myself, I decided to keep waiting, until you come back!”. “I love you”, he finally answers. Everything will be perfect. Their dream has come true. A new day shows the price of that dream. The question is, whether we are ready to see it.
