    The Falling Man | Behind The Photo | 100 Photos | TIME

    September 25, 2019

    Took an Express Subway train from times square to Chambers [street] which is to stop just before the world trade Center the first thing I saw was the two world trade centers both of them had smoke and fire coming from I just started making my pictures I was photographing the burning building when Emt says oh my gosh. Look at that, and we started seeing people coming down at the building I instinctively picked up my camera and started photographing them following him as they came down Until I photographed what must become known as the falling man It’s a very quiet photograph It’s not like a lot of other violent photographs from other disasters There’s no blood. There’s [no] guts. There’s nobody getting shot, but people react to it in a way that They feel that they can relate to this photograph That they might have been in the same situation, and they might have had to make whatever choice the man in the photograph made You have to be very aware of your surroundings when you’re in a situation like this you [have] to be careful that you don’t become [a] victim journalists don’t run away from falling building We don’t run away from the fire we run to it because it’s our job to record history [I] Didn’t know I [had] that photograph of that man in that position Until I actually saw it on my computer when I got back to [the] office I Called one of our photo editors, and I showed him the picture I said I [this] is it this has got to be the picture this man was like an arrow bisecting the two world trade centers I Woke up the next morning, and I opened up the paper, and there was my photograph of following that It was a very brave thing for them to use that picture it was the only picture that was like that of anybody falling from the building [the] only picture that showed any kind of human interaction [like] that a paper in Allentown Pennsylvania used the picture they put it on their whole back page in the newspaper And then the editor said that it was that important to photograph And he got a lot of mail letters the editor saying he shouldn’t have run this this is not something I want my children to see Tom [Juneau] the author of the esquire article. He’s the one who came up with the name the falling man That was the name of the article And it sort of stuck I’ve never regretted taking that photograph at all. It’s probably one of the only photographs that actually shows someone dying that [day] We have a terrorist attack on our own soil And we still don’t see pictures of our people dying and this is a photograph of someone dying you

    So you think these are better? Let me see… What do you think, which are better —
    these ones… You should try them on. I like it! Oh, don’t look, turn away! No, no, I’m not looking! – You’ll see everything tomorrow!
    – I’m not looking! Tomorrow is tomorrow. That’s that! Turn away! Ok, I have turned away. Did they call you
    Are you having a shoot? Yes, I’m having a shoot today. And what are you doing in the evening? And in the evening
    I’m having a hen-party. What are you having tonight? I’m seeing my girls. I see. Will you pick me up then
    I want them to look at you. – I want them to see how handsome you are!
    – Of course, I will! Don’t look at me, Vadik! I’m not looking! I can see that you’re looking! No, no, I’m not! – Oh, please, stop looking at me!
    – OK, OK, I won’t! Goldfish Year Here you are. Can you please check over if
    there are those guys with cameras? Oh, don’t emote —there is no one there!
    Moreover, we are blacked out here. – Really?
    – Of course, don’t worry! Still, could you leave in a
    couple of minutes after me… Why? I don’t want them to know
    everything before the time comes. After all, there are my fans… But you’re getting
    married to me, not to them. But still… Well, OK. OK? OK, OK, OK… Look, let’s go somewhere! To some kind of the island.
    A deserted island. We could spend there at least a week.
    There would be no fans, no one. Of course, I’ll drop everything now
    and will go to a deserted island! After the concert, OK’? Thank you! Excuse me! Yes, I excuse you. I just wanted to say that
    I also sing in this show… And I wanted to tell you
    that I admire you so much! You’ve always been for me… Please, just tell me
    what you want from me! You see, everybody says
    that I need a good composer. Someone like your composer. And I thought that you
    could give me an advice… What is your name? Zina. But in the show I’m Aelita. It was the producer’s idea.
    And I hoped that you could… I have a very expensive composer, Zina. And if your producer is unable
    to buy you a knobby song, change your lover and that’s all. But I don’t mean that… And I mean that. If you don’t
    understand that you’re just stupid. Hurry, hurry! Come on! What’s up Lada, honey, it’s
    high time for you to be here! What’s happened? Why, is it my turn? No, it’s what’s his name lsidor.
    And you’re after him. Everybody, cameras are
    on, hands up! Hands up! Don’t shirk, work, please! Come on, come on! Oh, my girls! Good girls! – Vlad!
    – Oh, Lada… Can I go onstage now instead of lsidor? – What’s up with you Of course you can’t!
    – Why not? What do you mean? The dancers are onstage,
    lsidor’s track is loaded… But it is very important for me!
    I implore you! Nothing will happen. Let
    him work, and then you will. – Please, tell them that I will go first!
    – Me? Please, please, tell
    them that I will sing now! No, I won’t.
    If you want, tell them yourself. Ok, I will!! Lada, what’s wrong with you? Look, lsidor, hi! May I go first?
    And you’ll sing after me, Ok? Are you nuts? No, not at all. I just won’t tell you wife
    who I saw you in the make-up room with. OK’? Deal. You’re such a bitch! All right! I love you, my dear! Let’s go, girls… I will be the next. Ok… Look, these are nice as for me…
    Will they do? Yes, thank you. – Will you take them?
    – Yes. Look at that! It’s Goldfish! What fish? Goldfish, the singer! Look at her! Here she goes! Hi, Girls! – Hi!
    – Hello! You’re so beautiful! Why are you wearing sun-glasses? Oh my God! Look at this! What is it there? I’ll show you now! Wow, very spicy Here you are. Lada, how did you manage
    to take him to the marriage office? The main thing is to prove the man
    that he is serious in his intentions. Other things are simple to accomplish. Yeah, your fans will bewail your wedding. Oh, girls, if you could
    only imagine how tired I am! – Don’t change your last name!
    – Of course, I won’t! Goldfish is one thing,
    Ivan ova is an other. Right… – Is he lvanov?
    – Yes, he is. Is he handsome? He is tall. Oh, girls, I missed you so much!
    How are you? Not that perfect! Asia, do you have any problems? No, I don’t. Why
    Masha’s life is harder. Asia! Why? What about me? I mean, it’s hard when
    you’re an single mother. I’m fine. I have my son and my job… Your problem, Asia,
    lies in your laziness. You don’t want at least to
    try and leave your teaching! What for I can leave
    teaching and then what? You have changed you job and now what? You’re rich, you have all those
    massages and swimming pools. Does it make you happier? Jealousy is the worst feeling. It has harmed the most
    of the world’s population. I don’t mean that! Girls, don’t quarrel! It’s senseless. I’m fine
    and I don’t need anybody! I’m quite independent.
    I entered the university myself. And I helped the workers
    at the building yard to carry bricks. And the fact that I own the company,
    Asia, means that I created it myself! – And you’re complaining.
    – I’m not complaining! – You do, my dear.
    – Who told you that I’m complaining? I have dozens of admirers! You see, they are all
    handsome, tall and married. Here she goes again… I would marry even an elderly man! A foreigner. And I would go abroad.
    But for my mother… I have only one dream —
    I want to marry! Like her! You just have to know
    exactly what you want. And then you will certainly get it. If it is meant for you, you
    will have it sooner or later. So, what is there? I couldn’t see anything!
    There are curtains on the windows. Girls! Each of you will write about her
    ideal man on a piece of paper. Wait a second, I don’t get
    it! You mean, point by point? What he is supposed to be like… Exactly! I will take
    these notes with me. And I promise that in a year
    you’ll have your dreams come true. I bring luck. Why in a year Why not straightaway? Because you can’t have
    everything straightaway! Do you have a piece of paper? I don’t. Are you serious? Come on.
    It’s clear that it is not serious… It IS serious! And I will write. Give
    me a piece of paper. – What? Masha!
    – Give me the paper! – Have you grudged the paper?
    – Give me the paper! – I won’t stint a piece of paper!
    – What’s the odds She wants to write! I can donate a page from
    my appointments book. Here you are!
    Do you need a pen, too Write! OK. I want to marry an artist. Masha! Look, what is his name This one? Oh my God… What is his name? lsidor. lsidor. Is he adequate? Yes, he is… he’s just… Well, I want to marry lsidor. Here, I have written that — you saw it! Where will I find him I don’t
    visit those bohemian parties! It’s not your concern!
    Asia! Write down your wish! – I will write!
    – Come on! I will! Asia. I want to meet an intelligent
    foreigner, who’s about 45. That’s a raving! Yes, it is! Here you are! What is it? Nina doesn’t write — she’s afraid
    that we’ll see that she dreams of a prince. No, a prince would be too
    young for me. I need a king. None the worse.
    I want him to be my equal. Rich! Why rich, Asia It’s all apple sauce! I want to be happy. I want to
    be love, and to love myself. Where can you find such a man? What do you mean? Where can you find him? I don’t know. You have found your Vadim! Oh, girls, Vadim is the only one! – Write, please, don’t be afraid!
    – What should I write? What if it comes true
    After all, she owes you. Who introduced Vadim
    to her Come on, write! – What would I write?
    – Write: I need a king… Write the way you said
    it yourself — a king. But it’s a raving! All right, let it be.
    A king. Is that all And write your name — Nina. Oh, yes, Nina. What a nocturnal! Here, get your paper! What a nonsense! Well, girls, I’ve got to go! I’m waiting for you tomorrow at my wedding. Don’t forget your passports, OK’? Why ls everything that serious? Yes, it’s because I’m afraid
    of paparazzi and strangers. Ok, girls, I love you! Bye! Bye-bye! See you tomorrow! Oh! – You’d better wear your glasses.
    – No, my eyes have got tired. I should have written “at the age of 40″… Lada Vladimirovna,
    wait a second, I’ll get the car! What car Vadim is waiting for me! Why are you sitting here Go outside! Mother… But you’re… No! No! It can’t be true…it can’t be true… Calm down, Lada, calm down… Mother… It’s not fair! Why me? Oh, my girl… Tell me, why me, mother? Calm down, Lada, my girl, calm down! I haven’t done it, mother! What could you do? I wanted to manage so much… What did you want to manage? I wanted to do so much,
    I wanted to manage so much, Mother! Mommy! What are you holding? And I will write!… …I will!… …I want to marry… an artiste… …In a year everything
    will come true… …What should I write?… …Write…a king… Nina, do you still work
    with Lada’s fiance, Vadim Yeas, we do. How is he? He seems to keep up but nobody
    knows how he really feels. It was so absurd… I can’t believe that
    it happened a year ago. A year Can it be true? Yeah… OK, thanks for a lift. – Oh, come on!
    – Bye! Bye-bye! – Hi!
    – Here you are! Hi! How are you here? Everything is fine. He’s sleeping. I put him in bed at
    8.30 PM. He’s sleeping. Great! What did you have to eat? Sasha didn’t want to eat borsch
    so I made some porridge for him. Great! What would I do without you! It’s OK! Sweet dreams, my baby. Sleep. Did you have supper? Sure! Borsch and sandwiches. Thank you! Go home now. Ok. Get enough sleep today! Oh, it’s not a problem! We’ve learned the tale
    “The Buzzy Bee” by heart. What do you mean All the lines? No, until the place when
    the mosquito comes to her. Good boys! Let me help you. Sorry for keeping you so long here! Oh, it’s OK! Well, thank you! I shall go. Bye! Bye. good night! – See you!
    – See you tomorrow! Bye! – Bye-bye!
    – Good bye! Misha is a good guy. I see. He’s not a good match. You need lsidor. Yeah, nobody knows what it is.
    Go and ask her. Maybe. Maybe.
    Look what a cat dragged in! Do you know what time it is? – I’m telling her about the time…
    – Oh my God! It’s five o’clock in the morning. Yes, I’m telling her what time it is. Albina Mikhailovna is the same.
    Why don’t you say anything? I’m 35, mother! Already. Did you hear that She’s a big girl now. When you get married, you can…
    But now… I don’t know. Yeah, how can I get
    married with your control? I don’t even have any
    place to date anyone! And I don’t have anyone to date… It seems hopeless. – It’s a nightmare.
    – It’s a dread. Who did you want to meet
    a year ago Did you forget it? Well, who was that A foreigner. 45 years old. Intelligent. Have you changed your mind? Oh, God! If I could only escape
    from you I’d even go abroad! Oh, don’t cry! I’ll take care about it! The New Year is coming… Oh, mom, the New Year is coming! I know… The New Year is coming. A Christmas Tree Artificial, of course. And we’ll invite Father Frost! Lady! Oh,thank you! My pleasure, lady! Lady! Maybe the lady could tell
    where this address is? Can you hold it? It’s so far from here!
    What are you doing here? But I was told that
    Pshorkin street is here… Yes, Pshorkin street is here.
    And you need Proshkin street. The phone number is also
    strange. It’s not our district. Major Proshkin street
    is a suburb. It’s far! Oh, it’s a pity! My teacher lives there! I’m a teacher, too! I compassionate you. OK, I’ll try to get a taxi. Good luck! Happy New Year! Happy New Happiness! Asia! Asia, are you nuts? Lady! Lady! Come on, hurry up! Asia! This is my mother. Mother, this is Valdek.

    a very beautiful city! Would you like to sit next
    to my mother! Over here! OK, I will! Oops! Oh, don’t worry, it’s for luck! Everything is fine! Wonderful! It’s nothing! It could be worse! Shall we eat or drink now? Ladies, why are you so shy today? Would you like some mineral water? Oh, Valdek, what is the life like there? Do you still have collective farms? Are you crazy? Why? And what is his name? We farms here now! What about you? It’s Asia’s piano. She has been
    doing music since she was four. She’s got an absolute hearing! Oh, mother! I see. Asia, don’t be so shy! I can’t, what are you… She also writes poems! Right! She’s such a smart girl! And so beautiful! Yes, a little! I’m very sorry for my
    intrusion. But I’m ready to… Always prepared? …to rehabilitate! Lady, will you allow me? Of course, of course! Valdek, it’s Asia’s piano! Mother, everybody has heard about it! Would you like to have another
    drink? Who will join me? Sit down. Here is a chair. Can you pour me more champagne? Sure! With pleasure!
    Give me your wineglasses! Where did she get him? I don’t know! It’s interesting! He’s quite bold but he’s
    intelligent and he’s a foreigner. Who is he? I don’t know! He plays well! Where did you get him? I found him in the street!
    Does it serve your turn? She found him in the street! Hi, guys! Let me kiss you! Oh. my girls! Oops! Oh, I’m sorry! Maybe it’s enough? Why did you get loaded again? You’re a freak. Nobody will need you. And where is your voice? Where is it? My voice is within me Got it? I must have missed something! Look, Varvara, what are you striving for? Do you want me to leave now? Who will you stay with? How old are you if not
    to think of your uplifts? And who did this ble… -blefaroplastica-
    mblefaroplastica surgery? You said you uplifted your eyelids only. You can tell this to your
    housemaids You got it? You have uplifted all
    your face a hundred times! How rude… How rude… You can’t even shut your mouth! Why are you smiling?
    Why are you grinning? Do you think I’m a child?
    Do you think I’m your puppy? I’ll stand up and leave now. Got it? Someone will be there for me. So? So, what are you waiting for? Go away! Come on! Come on, stand up! OK, I will! – And…
    – What? Get champagne. Can I have it Keep your hair on! Excuse me. Happy New Year, Varvara! Happy holiday, mister officer! Take it! Happy holiday. Why did you let him in? Let him celebrate the
    holiday in a warm place! You’re Mother Theresa! But it’s a holiday! Right, it’s a holiday! And as it’s a New Year holiday… – What is wrong with you?
    – What? What is wrong Has my mascara spread? No… What is it then? – I don’t know.
    – The hairdo is new. Right? No, I have noticed the hairdo. Misha! Oh, I have got my ears pierced. You see? Oh, and I thought you
    had plucked your eyebrows! Are you a fool? Ok, let’s have a drink yo New Year. And I wish you that all your
    wishes in the New Year… Get your hands off me… Move on. Oh my God! Come on, slowly! Very well! Happy New Year! Get your present! Couldn’t you take him to the
    nearest sobering-up station? It’s too far! We’d have to walk 15 minutes! And we also want to stay in
    a warm place with some champagne! So let this prince sleep here. Register him quickly and
    put him into the lockup. Where did you find him? We didn’t. Traffic police officers did. He was fighting and cursing.
    And he doesn’t have any documents. Let’s go, stranger! OK! Let him sleep sober, we’ll
    take care of him tomorrow! I’ve warmed and refreshed myself.
    Thanks, I’ll go and help him! I don’t understand you, my dear! I did my best! Don’t you see whom I have brought to you? Open your eyes! Don’t back off as Asia does. You don’t know who I am!
    You just don’t know me! All of you are the common ruck. You’ve not deserved to
    wipe dust from my boots! …and shoes! Look, it’s him… Who? My wife adores him… I don’t know him. You don’t even realize who I am! Maybe I should ask for an autograph? Where should we put
    him Into the lockup? Let him sleep sober! OK, get him here. To the couch. This is me! Well, let’s go to the couch. Shut up, Popov! Shut your mouth! Yes, over there. Carefully. It’s yours. Thanks! You’re welcome! This is our family business. My father established it.
    We work globally. Through Moscow and Belgrad offices. Mister Vilyanovich, we
    certainly will co-operate! I don’t even doubt that! Family is the symbol of
    traditions and decency. We are a vivid example of family business. By the way, my older brother
    is in charge of Belgrad office. And I run the Moscow one. I think that is exactly who you need. He is the one you wanted! Equal to you, and the most
    important is that he likes you! It’s a wonderful evening, isn’t it’? Yeah… You look great today! Thank you! – Where were you?
    – She’s coming! – Here she is! Happy New Year!
    – I’ve been waiting for you here! Happy New Year! – Hi!
    – Hi! I heard you have problems
    with the Security Service. I can help you if you want. Oh no, it doesn’t matter! I’ll solve my problems
    myself! Thank you! Whatever. Look, I have an original offer to you —
    would you like to dance? I haven’t danced for ages. I see. Maybe you’d like to go to a restaurant? We are in the restaurant. Right. Then maybe… To the Zoo? To the Zoo. It’s funny. So, I will go. Go. Bye. Bye-bye. Nina, Happy New Year. Happy New Year. I’m such a fool! No, you’re not a fool. Yes, this is police…
    Hello, lady, I can’t hear you. Popov, will you stop singing? Shut up now otherwise you’ll
    be free in a second! Got it’? And who will wash the floors Pushkin? Yes, Pushkin. Bring the case before the
    court. You will get the divorce. What does he overwhelm you with? He overwhelms you with flowers? Oh God, who would ever
    overwhelm me with flowers? And what flowers do you like the most? What? What… What flowers do you like? Orchids! Orchids… Wow, give me a pinch! Hello! And where is… Oh, good afternoon, Maria! I’m here to thank you
    that you haven’t left me for the mercy of fate
    on the New Year day. And helped me… It wasn’t me, our guys helped you. But you didn’t let me plank
    dishonorably in such an evening. Her eyes, her kindness are
    the brightest memories I have. And I decided to…
    How can I give them to you? Can I come in there? Can I? You see, you can’t go in there. It’s not allowed. It’s prohibited. Can I have your autograph? Of course, you can! Can you hold it? And an autograph for me? Thanks a lot! Can I talk to the lady, please? Give me the bouquet. I have brought for you. Yeah… Wait a second! Open the gate! I have opened it. This is for you. Thank you! I’ve come to talk to you. I thought that you’re a police officer and you know about the
    accommodation market. What do you mean? You see, I have some circumstances.
    I have nowhere to live. I need an apartment and I
    thought you could rent it to me. But I don’t have a spare flat. I’ll be satisfied with
    a room or a corner. I live not alone. Oh, is that man your husband, right? What husband? Well… Oh, Misha! No! He’s not my husband! So, he’s not your husband? I don’t have a husband. And maybe we’ll marry in that case? – Masha!
    – What? Masha! What is it? Did you say “Yes”? Not yet. I said that I had to think it over. I just don’t understand! She’s going to marry nobody knows who! What does it mean “nobody knows who”? What do you mean? Everyone in our country knows him! Bohemian. Masha, and have you had? Well Oh, no. Oh, come on! Look, girls, wait a minute! He must be married! Isn’t he? Oh no, not anymore. He left his wife. Left her Are you sure? Of course! Do you think he’s lying? And what is that to you? Oh, Masha! Doesn’t
    your artist juggle you? Lada! What? Do you remember our wishes
    we wrote on a piece of paper? What did we write? We all made our wishes —
    you and I… and Asia. Oh, come on, girls! Asia! Lenya, bring us some vodka, please! I made a wish to meet a foreigner! Who? Valdek! His name is Valdek. He is a composer from Poland. Hallo. Hi, Vadim. Look, I’ll call you later, OK’? Thanks, bye. Who is this Vadim? Just Vadim! This is it that Vadim? Yes, this is that Vadim! Asia, tell her! – Oh, Nina!
    – Leave me alone! Here you are. But there are three of us… Hi! Your punctuality, Mrs… U Miss! Oh,thank you! Not at all! You can make
    fun of me as much as you can! Why, have you been waiting for long? Have you been waiting for long? I’ve almost become an iceberg! Poor thing! But it’s not my fault! What time is it at your watch? And mine shows this! Asia, this is like a kinder orchard! Kindergarten! Right! You behave like a little girl! Why do I have to apologize all the time? Oh, Valdek, don’t be offended, please! I had an extra class with my children,
    and after that a prosody coterie. What coterie? We write poems! What poems? Good ones! About nature,
    about weather, about love! Something like this: “I will weave the pattern of my road, Oh God, I can feel no distance any more,
    My towns disappear, My desire is a shadow of silk, I can rent the sky and say good bye to all, Only the winds whisper endlessly.” Who wrote that? A little girl. We have to go to you home. Now. What do you mean, Valdek? Hurry, hurry! Wait a bit, I can’t, it’s too fast! You will have to learn. What for? You will have to fit me. Why do I have to fit you? Oh, God, what is it? Because because we’re getting married! And you’re leaving! With me. How did you say? What exactly? The poem about love! “I will weave the pattern of my road” “I will weave the pattern of
    my road”. Why do you need it? Valdek, Valdek!
    Why didn’t you come earlier? This is what I’ve been looking for. Asia. Who wrote it? I did. Me. I mean, I. Honestly. Will you marry me? Mother hasn’t changed. Good evening, Mrs. Albina! Hello! Mummy, Valdek proposed to me. It’s nice. Excuse me. Mummy! Mummy! It’s OK, they will make it out! Yeah… They will make it out. “I will weave the pattern of my road, Oh God, I can feel no distance any more, My towns disappear, My desire is a shadow of silk, I can rent the sky and
    say good bye to all, Only the winds whisper endlessly. I hear the voices singing, A crystal world, My heart is like ether. A crystal world, My heart is like ether. There are so many clouds, I can’t hear you coming, The sun is rising, A dove will fly away, We’ll never come back, never! A crystal world, My heart is like ether. A crystal world, My heart is like ether.” Hello! I have always admired your punctuality. Thank you! Please! Thanks! Do you like this place? It’s quite cozy. I’m glad to hear that. Your invitation was unexpected.
    Why did you invite me? We are partners, Nina Vitalyevna! Isn’t it possible for us to meet
    and spend some time together? Of course, it is but… I thought that… Yes. You understood everything correctly. I have an offer to you. I am all attention. Sorry. Did I understand you right? We are people of business, Miss Pavlova. Our marriage and the
    merger of our companies will leave no possibilities
    for our competitors. You will have everything. And what do you think, I don’t have? Power. We’ll have absolute power and priority at the real estate
    market in your country. This is a good speech for the press. Do you want me to make it simpler? I do. But why? I don’t love you. And you don’t love me. But it’s not a good reason
    to decline my offer. Unions of hearts are made in heaven, and marriages of convenience
    are made at the notary’s offices. This is the difference. Then I will be more specific. I’m in love. But not with you. Can it be the reason? I won’t give him to you, got it? I don’t know what I’ll do,
    but you won’t be with him! Well, I’m very sorry. Really. My heart is broken. I’m sure that you will be able to cure it soon. Keep it. It’s a present. But it’s a very expensive present. I’m not that meticulous.
    Let it be a little souvenir. And I beg you to keep
    it as we are partners. Well, only if this is a
    present from a business partner. Great. I have another offer to you. There is a plot available. And you may buy it. Why don’t you buy it yourself? I’m a foreigner. lsidor! Stop everyone! Police! Don’t move or I’ll

    got the wrong impression. And these fans could tread
    you and your guards to pieces! Oh, come on! Or tear you apart! Tell me, please, why do you
    always go out the service entrance? And how should I go out? How In some other way. As all people do. They come and go through the front door! And wear something more decent! Is there any problem with my clothes? And use some make up, disguise
    yourself with false mustaches and a hat… I don’t know. Oh, come on.

    will I bring up my son? Is that a big deal?
    There are plenty of nannies! Hi! Hello. Did I wake you up? Oh, no, don’t worry! I’m driving. Did you want anything? I just was thinking… What were you thinking? I was thinking that
    maybe I could come to you. Just for a little while. In ten minutes I will be at home. OK. Bye. Thanks. Sorry, I… I want to get drunk but I can’t. Maybe it’s time to recall
    that you’re still alive? What did you say about some plots? It doesn’t matter. Yes, there is a plot, a good plot. It belongs to some Mashkovich. I’m planning to build three houses there. Why doesn’t he build there himself? Who Oh, he’s getting married. To a model. And it looks as if he is going abroad. It’s a strange story.
    And it’s a strange gift. You should check him up.
    I can do it if you want. No, don’t. I’ll take care of it myself. Just don’t get offended,
    OK’? This is my business. What ever. Vadim! Let’s go home. What did you forget here? I’d rather go home. Did you forget anything? I don’t want to leave. Nobody asks you to. You may stay if you want. I’ll make a bed here for you. Why does it hurt so much, mummy? Why does it hurt that much’? You love him, my girl. I hate them. I hate my alive and happy girlfriends!

    – Dream on! Misha, what are you talking about?
    Are you my mother or my father? Right! I’m nobody. But you have a son. The son who learned a poem
    for you for half a night. To wish you happy birthday. Oh God, he’s so mushy! He can bloody well
    congratulate her tomorrow! What are you doing? lsidor… Sasha… It was a great roundhouse punch! Do you think so? I think it was a knockdown. OK, let’s go or you’ll be
    late for the kindergarten. Get in! Take it! Got it! A knockdown is not a knockout. What’s up with you? Get off me! Where were you? I was here all the time! Come here! Open the door! Open the door! I would bump you! What plans do you have for today? Any suggestions?
    Cinema, theater, restaurant? Can you pass me my purse, please? I’m sorry. Don’t! I can do it myself. Wow! What is it? Give it to me! Give it back to me! – What is it?
    – Give it to me! It’s a souvenir. A souvenir
    from Vilyanovich. Give it up! Not a bad souvenir! He proposed to me and I refused. Satisfied? But you have pocketed the ring. Look, I’m not a girl. I’m a grown-up and independent woman. Can I make these decisions
    about taking presents myself? Can I? You must have confused
    me with someone else. No? Who have I confused you with? You called me Goldfish today.
    And I’m not a Goldfish. Where is it? – Asia, Asia!
    – Wait a minute! Mister Valdek, here are some
    chicken cutlets, salad and bread. Mother, what is it for? Are you going to be hungry on the train? — And mister Valdek will want to eat!Right?
    — In that case there is a dining-car! Just listen what she is talking about! This is her feature —
    she likes spending money. Blowing them off,
    especially somebody else’s. She absolutely doesn’t value them. Can you, please, control her. Sure, Mrs. Albina. And eat hot meals three times a day! Sit down before you leave,
    Asia, it is necessary! – Asia!
    – Where is it? Oh, here it is! Mummy, let’s go or we’ll be
    late, the taxi is waiting! I’m not going to the
    station. Go yourself, ok? Why? The shorter the parting, the less tears. I’ll come to your wedding! Right? Mister Valdek, I beg you
    not to delay having a baby! – We’re not that young. You understand me!
    – Mother, please! What I’m telling the truth! Mister Valdek understands me,
    we are not that young! We’ll do our best. Mister Valdek, it’s great! Farewell! Everything is fine, go! Behave prettily! OK, hurry!
    Go, go! Haven’t you left anything behind?
    Passport and tickets? Mommy, my bag! Your bag Wait a second,
    don’t cross the door! – I’ll give it to you!
    – Go, go! OK. bye-bye! Bye! OK, this is all. Well, well.. Valdek, take care of her!
    She’s such a delicate girl! I’ll do my best! – Why are you crying?
    – I don’t know! Come on, you’re getting
    married! You must be happy! Asia, it’s time! See you, ladies! Oh God, I don’t know what to say! See you soon! BYE-bye, my dear, bye! Call us, will you? Go, go! Asia! Asia, call us! Asia! – Valdek!
    – Good bye! Everything is gonna be all right! Enough! Go, go! Let’s go! Now we’ll get your suitcase, And will ask for tea. Haven’t you forgotten the documents?
    You’re so absent-minded! You’re my beloved little girl! I’m not going anywhere, Valdek! What’s wrong? Did I offend you? No, I’m not offended, I just… – Does it have to do with your mom?
    – She has nothing to do with it! I just can’t. Forgive me. You’re very sweet, really. But I… How are you? I’m very well. I’ve done a new deal.
    I’ve bought a plot. I’ve got a loan from the bank. And I’m building two
    16-storeyed buildings there. I’m fine. You’re always fine. Maybe you’re right. I told you! I told you
    not to call me anymore! Vadim, this is ridiculous! Really, I just don’t
    want to listen about it! Vadim, Vilyanovich has
    nothing to do with it all. Look, we are grown-up people. This is all. Why are you staring at me? Everything is perfect! Get in the car! Just look at it! What? Asia! That is Asia! What has happened? Asia! Asia, what’s wrong? I’d never! Let’s go! Mister Vilyanovich? I’m listening. I hope that you have
    received a good commission for having set up your main competitor? What do you mean? Confess that it were
    you who persuaded Nina to buy a plot from some Mashkovich! So what? It was a square deal,
    I just introduced them. But you know it perfectly well
    that Mashkovich is a bankrupt. Two months ago all his
    property was arrested. The deal is inoperative. But I really didn’t know
    that it was invalid! Oh, come on! You must have forgotten that
    all telephone conversations in you company get recorded. “Hold back the information
    about the court decision at least for the couple of weeks. If you manage
    to prolong this period — I pay double.” This is a falsification and a blackmailing. You’ll tell the court about it. Have a good day. We have a little problem. Asia! I thought that you
    are the most sensible of us. And you… I’m as stupid as you are. Yes, Rita, I’m listening. Nina Vitalyevna, it’s a disaster. What is it? The court decision has arrived, The plot, you bought, had been arrested
    to pay the debts of the previous owner. – The building has been stopped.
    – How could it happen? – Can you hear me, Nina Vitalyevna?
    – Calm down, Rita. – What shall we do?
    – Rita, calm down! – What shall I do, Nina Vasilyevna?
    – No panic! – OK, I’m calm.
    – That’s a good girl. Now, listen to me. Go and tell the staff
    that today is a short-time. In honor of what? In honor…l don’t know! What is the date? I don’t know. Stockbreeder’s day Let them
    go to their country houses! OK! We’ll manage it, right? Yes, you’re right. Well, Rita, we’ll be in touch. OK. What’s happened? Nothing special. I just have a problem. A big one. What do you mean? I that I’m a bankrupt. And Vadim was right. My wonderful fiance Vilyanovich
    decided to play revenge. All right, I’ll go and get
    a towing rope from my boot? Oh my God! What for? To hang myself. That would be the last straw. Calm down. Damn it! What is it? Have you seen this? Hey, lady! Miss! I don’t get it… Where is she going? – We’ll sort it out!
    – Where is she going? I don’t understand! Independent fool! Will you answer the phone? Why do you need her? You’re mine. You’re mine! Do you hear me? Pick up the phone! Vadim… Can you hear me? Why is it so cold here? Yes, hello. Vadim? Yes, this is me. Who is this? I was asked to call you. Nina Vitalyevna met with an accident. What accident? Not very long ago. It’s very serious. Where is she? At the hospital. What hospital? You won’t go there! “I will weave the pattern of my road, Oh God, I can feel no distance any more, My towns disappear, My desire is a shadow of silk, I can rent the sky and
    say good bye to all, Only the winds whisper endlessly. I hear the voices singing, A crystal world, My heart is like ether. A crystal world, My heart is like ether. There are so many clouds, I can’t hear you coming, The sun is rising… A dove will fly away, We’ll never come back, never! A crystal world, My heart is like ether. A crystal world, My heart is like ether.” Hurry, Misha, he’ll escape! He won’t! Your lsidor will rather escape from you. What lsidor? There is no lsidor! – What shall I do What shall I do?
    – Hold her tight! – I’m holding!
    – Hold her well, don’t joggle! Vadim, she’s bleeding,
    Vadim, I’m afraid of blood! – Get off my way?
    – Just hold her hard! Drive to the right! Can I do it myself? Do it, if you can. Give me the hand! Oh, not yours, her hand! Don’t leave me now, I beg you! Don’t leave, I love you, such a fool! Vadim, she doesn’t breathe! Nina, Nina, breathe! Nina! Nina, don’t leave me
    now, I beg you! Nina! Nina, breathe!
    Nina, don’t leave me, Nina! My girl. It’s over. It’s over! Operating section. Doctor, what’s new? Oh, don’t worry, you have a girl! – Congratulations!
    – Thank you! Vadim! You did your best! – Congratulations!
    – A girl! Congratulations! A girl is
    not a boy, of course, but… Let me kiss you! – Vadim!
    – Thank you. I want to go there! No one can see! – Wait!
    – Asia! Where are you going to? Hey, Misha, where are you going? – There!
    – Why are you going there? They all are going! And what do you want there? But they went there! – And why are you going there?
    – I just wanted to see. There is nothing to look at? But why did they go there? – OK, go and see!
    – I won’t go anywhere now! Why should I go there? What did you want to see there?
