SYNOPSIS

  1. The former Captain of the Soviet Army Saidulla lives alone in a small house. His son lives in the same village but he does not associate with his father and does not permit the grandson to have contact with his grandfather. He often has a vision: he is visited by an old army friend. He looks exactly the same as he saw him alive for the last time – in the uniform and with an automat-ic gun. Once during a medical check-up Saidulla learns that he has cancer. He does not have much time left but he has to solve the most important problems: provide water-supply for the school, make it up with his son and pay a visit to his former colleague.

1989. Mantan Kapten Angkatan Darat Soviet, Saidulla hidup seorang diri di sebuah rumah kecil. Putranya tinggal di desa yang sama namun tidak berhubungan dengan ayahnya dan tidak mengizinkan si cucu untuk melakukan kontak dengan kakeknya. Saidulla sering mengalami penglihatan: ia dikunjungi oleh kawan lama di angkatan darat. Kawannya terlihat persis sama seperti saat terakhir Saidulla melihatnya hidup – mengenakan seragam dan membawa senapan otomatis. Suatu ketika saat pemeriksaan medis, Saidulla mengetahui bahwa ia menderita kanker. Ia tidak punya banyak waktu tersisa namun ia harus menyelesaikan beberapa urusan penting: menyuplai air untuk sebuah sekolah, berdamai dengan putranya dan mengunjungi bekas koleganya.
