Summary
A remake of 1986 "Is It Easy Being Young?" by Latvian director Juris Podnieks, this film features an open talk of young people living under the Soviet regime - their conflicts with grown-ups, parents, teachers and the entire society, about drugs and what the life means. Mikhail Gorbachev once called the documentary "the first bird of Perestroika". The audience now has grown-up kids of their own. This new generation has different problems and different views of life. This film explores the problems people face, people who have witnessed dramatic changes in their society. By way of asking direct unbiased questions the authors talk on equal grounds with young people who have made their first independent steps in life, including a 19 year old professional soccer player convicted for unintentional murder at 14 and a young Nationalist Bolshevik (Communist) Party member and his political enemy, one of the pro-Putin "The Ours" young leaders. All characters are captured at the most important moments of their lives. The documentary contains independent video chronicle displaying the current political, social and moral situation in Russia. There is also ample and shocking youth statistic data sourced from UNICEF, the Russian Federal Youth Agency and the Russian Public Opinion Fund reports.
