Farewell Volga

Director Hamlet Vardanyan

Production year 2014

Length 24min.

Country Armenia


Young people try to avoid boredom by escaping from their hometown. Drinking in fields with friends is more tempting than dating with a girl-friend. "Volga" will be a shelter from rain, snow, wind... but will not fill the gap of boredom and emptiness. Farewell Volga, once after many years, the younker, who never got used to alcohol, will write in his diary.
