Plyumbum, ili Opasnaya igra

A 15-year-old schoolboy volunteers at the local police station to free his hometown of “rubbish”, which is how he refers to anyone who doesn’t behave in line with social norms. When his actions are rejected even by the police, he decides to go it alone in entirely unscrupulous fashion and wreaks more and more havoc on his surroundings. With this story of a frighteningly unempathetic, arrogant antihero, Vadim Abdrashitov warned of the reactionary tendencies that can form in times of political and social upheaval while the last stage in the history of the Soviet Union was just beginning.
