  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

A senile Soviet party "comrade" which has all the power to push any button will certainly draw to the ruinous explosion. Not only houses and towns are breaking, but the whole empire is breaking. Only at the end he sees that his finger itself has become a nuclear button. Prophetic film in which the author had predicted the ruin of USSR before the historical events.  At that time ?remlin regime only accelerated the process of disintegration of the country through its actions.
