She couldn’t have slipped or fallen from that roof accidentally There is a high fence there. Anna had some money and valuables with her. Could she have a larger amount? No, I don’t think so Therefore she couldn’t have been killed to be robbed. Did she have enemies? No, no! Of course she didn’t! What about you? I mean serious enemies who could dare arrange a murder Do you mean my business? No! As you see, there is no evidence that would point to the murder The only thing is… No, it’s impossible! We arranged to meet today! One moment… This is what Anya sent me yesterday. “Hello, sister! I miss you very much. I have great news. Let’s meet!” May I look at it? Thank you, I’ll take it into account. And one more thing! This is what we found in Anya’s bag What is it? A drug. Methamphetamine Was she taking it? We can’t be sure. We shall wait for the expert’s conclusions But we found it in her bag, so it is possible May we go? Yes, you may.

What do you have to do with it, dad? Yes, I paid little attention to her! I only thought about work, the money, money, money! What did she do it for? It must have been because of that stuff! Something seems wrong here No, everything is clear There was no expertise Somebody could have put it in her bag secretly! God, what will I tell your mum? They’re together now I’m sorry, Kyra. I’m sorry I’ll stay with you, OK? Sure! Find everything you can about her father. Enemies, conflicts, relatives – everything The division of property and things like that Any info you can find! All right Gena, did you understand me? Alexei Anatolyevitch, why do you keep calling me Gena? I have an ancient and very beautiful Georgian name! Papuna! I was named in honor of my grandfather. He was a respected man! He could hit a fly from his old gun from a twenty-step distance! And you… Despite my respect towards your grandpa and his old gun I’ll call you Gena. First of all I got used to that Secondly, it’s “genatsvale” for short Vlasova used to study at the law faculty Go there and talk to people. Scandals, rumors, students’ quarrels… This is a list of questions I need the answers by today’s evening! All right. I better go before it’s too late Go! Wait! Yes? Pay special attention to her sister Kyra All right, I’ll do it. Genatsvale! All right, go! Kyra! They told me you won’t come today Stop it, Maria Mikhaylovna! Is Nastya still sleeping? She is getting up earlier than me! She is drawing in her room! What a great ration! I think you’re paying for this with your own money! I’ll cook you a fish soup today and a custard cake for dessert But we’ll have to make an injection first As you say Are you upset with something? No, everything is fine. Maria Mikhaylovna, I need to make a phone call Sure, Kyra! Please use the phone! Yes, Kyra Petrovna! I’m listening Are there any news? Unfortunately I can’t tell you anything yet, but we’re working I’m going to the trade center at the moment to examine the place of her fall and the roof. Kyra Petrovna, we got the expert’s conclusion. Anya was on drugs So she was on drugs, after all! I’ll come soon Wait for me there, OK?
OK I have to go, Maria Mikhaylovna Don’t worry, I’ll clean it! Go! What has happened? Where are you going? My sister died yesterday She fell from the roof Oh, God! If I can help you with anything please don’t hesitate to ask! Thank you! If we fail to find some piece of evidence soon we’ll have to close the case I was in Anna’s flat today and found this Pyropromid. What is it? It’s a very potent medicine It belongs to a group of tri-cycle antidepressants It’s impossible to buy it here An antidepressant! It only confirms my version that… Kyra, are you crazy? What are you doing? Let me go! Hi, dad! Kyra, where are you? At home. I was on the roof today Look, Kyra, why? The investigator said that the case is closed Leave it to the policemen, they’ll do their job! Dad, it was our Anya! Yes, Kyra, it was our Anya We only have each other now I’ll come for you If you don’t sell it in this season you’ll have to buy it yourself! Hello Good afternoon Did you have such dresses? Yes, but we don’t have them anymore! It’s a very stylish thing! They were very popular. The new delivery is on Monday Leave me your phone number and I’ll keep one dress for you No, I’m not going to buy it You should! The dress is great! A very nice model! Tell me, did this girl buy it here? I remember her well She was very beautiful She was in high spirits. She even bought a necklace here She has a great taste and a very handsome husband How did he look like, that husband of hers? He was tall, blonde, with a short cut… or maybe not Who are you? I see! She was not his wife, you’re his wife! No! Thank you Kyra Petrovna! What are you doing here? Are you watching me? Me? No! Why did you think so? I came here as a private person I was buying a toy and saw you I can see that you’ve started your own investigation I saw you talking to a salesman in that shop You’re closing the case, aren’t you?
You didn’t investigate it properly. And I found a witness who saw Anya in this trade center! What did he say? Anya was in that shop. She bought a dress and a necklace She was happy. She was with a man I beg your pardon, Kyra! What is that? I found these photos in my sister’s computer Do you recognize the landscape? I do. These photos are professional! But how can they help us? You see, a woman can’t buy necklaces in the afternoon, make photos in it, be in high spirits and then jump from the roof in the evening! In reality a woman may make photos one hundred times a day, smile two hundred times a day and then catch her beloved one with another woman in the evening and jump from the roof Believe me, I know such cases! You’re a real connoisseur of the women’s psychology! What shall we do next? Let’s do it this way Don’t do anything for now I’ll try to find a man who was with your sister on the day of her death in the trade center If I get to know anything I’ll give you a call. Is it a deal? Kyra? Why aren’t you married? It’s none of your business! You didn’t buy the toy for your partner yourself, did you? No, it’s for my wife… I mean my son I see! You got me wrong. I divorced my wife five years ago It’s time for me to go. I’ll be waiting for your call Maria Mikhaylovna? Maria Mikhaylovna? Hello, who is breaking the door? Who wants me to break his teeth out of the jaws? Hello Hello I came to Maria Mikhaylovna Let me come in, please No way. Who are you? I’m a social worker And a family doctor I’m giving Nastya lessons and look after Maria Mikhaylovna And who are you?

No, listen to me! I’ll keep coming every day as before Do you get me? Maria Mikhaylovna? Hello, Kyra! Nastya! It’s all right, this is me. Calm down Come here, my honey My girl!

I’ll drive him out of here! There is no place for him to go I think another one of his girlfriends drove him away One moment Listen to me, respected Igor… what is your father’s name? Mikhaylovitch Mikhaylovitch. I’m a social worker and you get in the way of performing my job! I’ll have to report to my director and he’ll take administrative or even criminal measures against you!

We’ll manage. Do you hear the doorbell? This is the police! Now they’ll tell you all about administrative and criminal responsibility Don’t consider yourself too clever! Senior Lieutenant Stupalov Did you call for the police? Yes, I did. Come in, please! Can you imagine that? I made just one step and she broke into the flat and started threatening me! She broke in with some false ID and started threatening me! She locked my mother in the room, she locked my daughter and demanded money! Igor Mikhaylovitch, calm down! I’m calm! I’m just telling about what had happened! She demanded the money and when I refused to give her anything she sprayed my eyes with a tear gas! Look! Calm down! We’ll sort it out! I have red eyes! The gas spray is in her bag! In the bag! Check the bag! Please show me your bag and your documents Here you go You too Why me? What do I have to do with it? I’m the victim This is for the minutes Oh, for the minutes! All right Sit down Wait! They’ll sort it out!

He used to drive trucks for long distances He would spend two days at home and go on a trip for two months Nastya wasn’t used to him He would bring her some toy and she would hide behind her mother’s skirt When Lena died she fell silent Oh, poor child!

Mark Vitalyevitch? Yes? Thank you! It was nothing That’s no so Kyra Petrovna, may I invite you to dinner tonight? Try it Igor started to resist, but my strategic step worked, so
The problem didn’t seem so significant for him anymore So it worked If I were you I wouldn’t believe his promises He is a long-time drunk, after all And I’m an experienced lawyer We signed a written agreement Shall he violate it Kyra, hi! Do we know each other? Kyra, I’m Lyusya. Don’t you remember me? No I was at Anya’s birthday party last year I studied with her, do you remember? I remember you now I saw you somewhere too Lady, you’re mistaken Kyra, I’m sorry that Anya… You understand She seemed to be all right. I better go I’m sorry, I’ll be back in a moment Lyusya, when did you see Anya for the last time? It was long ago Do you know her friends? I have no idea Lyusya, I need to know everything about her It’s too late. Even God himself can’t know everything about a person I must know whom she dated I don’t need problems So good bye, friend! Are you crazy? I’ll call the guards now! These are the diamond. Tell me the name, and you’ll get these earrings Ask Anton. He should know whom his girlfriend started dating! Give me the other one! All right. Anton is a photographer We used to sleep with him Then he fell for your sister and left me. This is it Was he selling drugs to Anya? Maybe yes and maybe no. They were going to many clubs, and it’s not a problem to find drugs there Do you have his phone number? I deleted it from my phone and from my life! Will you give me the second earring? Call me when you remember Anton’s phone number Anya was a very happy person I don’t believe that it was a suicide! What do the policemen say? They are closing the case It seems to me that somebody helped her That girl from the restaurant, Lyusya, told me that Anya and she quarreled over a boyfriend What if he did it? I have to find him! It makes more sense to suspect the girl. They were competitors Let’s change the topic All right Tell me about yourself About myself? My story is very banal I grew up in an orphanage My grandma took me from there She sold the house to pay for my education I got to know about it late When I came she was already Remember Yashin’s poem: “My stepfather died, and my grandma is not with us any longer One should not postpone doing good deeds” Kyra, I have an offer to you!

I’m coming I have some information for you All right Mark, I’ll drop you here, I’m going in a different direction now All right, sure Thank you! No! I beg your pardon, Alexei Anatolyevitch, but I won’t keep you for long I know who Anya was with that day! His name is Anton, he is a professional photographer It must be him who made that photo Anya had relations with him. I met Anya’s girlfriend yesterday She told me about it What is that girl’s name? Lyusya. I don’t know her surname, but she and Anya studied together Did she tell you how to find that Anton? She promised to call when she gets to know something Brilliant! Inform me when she calls! I won’t close this case But I have a request to you Please don’t make any steps without informing me first It’s a deal Here you go Thank you for hearing me out Good bye! Gena, where have you been?

No, she is from Ryazan She lives in a dormitory She doesn’t study too well She has lots of bad marks We’re closing this case, aren’t we? No, Gena, we’re not. We’ve found new circumstances Alexei Anatolyevitch, I ran around the university like a hound Nobody knows anything! You should not only run around but think and analyze! Study the new case materials! Dad, I’m home! Hi, Kyra! I’m here Hi You should have dinner first Do you have new charges? Tell me about them! No, I have my old ones The Solovyovs family Really?

Were you there? I was! Very good! Did Lyusya tell you that? What a fool! I never dated her We went to a club together on a few occasions Lyusya said that you’re not together because of Anya! Maybe she thinks so! It’s her right! Why did you separate with Anya? Why, why? It happens! It was very good at first Then our relations deteriorated We saw less and less of each other. Then she found that
Who? Andrei I think is his name. I don’t remember She came to me and said: “I fell in love, I feel good with him Let’s remain friends. It’ll be better for both of us”! Who is that Andrei? Do you know him? No, I don’t know him. I saw them together once or twice Will you be able to identify him? I think so! I have good face memory. I shall go I didn’t allow you to go! It must be he who sold her drugs I have nothing to do with that. When we were dating she wouldn’t even drink two gulps of beer! I only heard about her addiction from you! What were you doing in the trade center? What were we doing? She called me to make her photos on a roof She loved unusual places! I came there and made some photos! This is all What was next? Nothing! We went to a cafe I downloaded the photos into her flash-card and left What was she planning to do? What mood was she in? I don’t know what mood she was in! She seemed fine!

I want to earn a right to one more dinner with you Consider that you’ve earned it What about your childhood? My childhood was like a fairy-tale Dad was very kind to me and Anya We were waiting more for his vacation than for our school holidays! We used to travel abroad a lot. Some classmates positively hated me for that Really? Yes. I started concealing from friends that I was in some… Germany Why? I studied in an ordinary school. Few of my classmates ever went farther than their grandma’s villages The times were harsh then! This is true! Let’s toast the times! I remember envying my neighbor who had a new foreign car
I didn’t understand why I got so unlucky with parents So I punctured his wheels one day! God, I’m telling you such silly things! I envied my classmates who were coming to school on a tram Can you imagine? I was begging mum to let me ride it! The car was bringing me to school and taking me home It was so boring! This is a song from my favorite movie The one Franco Nero stars in it Yes! Do you like old movies too? How is it called?

She is in the emergency clinic But it’s too late Let’s go to her tomorrow The emergency clinic. All right. See you tomorrow Who was that? Borisov, the investigator What did he want? Do you remember a girl from the restaurant? She was run over by a car! Is he is love with you, Kyra Petrovna? Are you jealous? Did you pray this evening, Desdemona? Hello, Kyra? Where are you? Good morning, dad. I’m sorry, I stayed at home Look, you should have warned me! We agreed that you’ll live with me for some time! It just happened so! Will you come today? I will Don’t you want to tell me about something? I’ll tell you when I sort it out! Everything is fine, dad I’m sorry, I have to get up, I’m being late. I’ll call you later Bye! Lyusya? Lyusya, this is Kyra Kyra Petrovna! We agreed to go to the hospital together
Why didn’t you wait for me? Lyusya could have told me what she wouldn’t dare tell you! Do you realize that the murderer could be in the ward? You scared the hell out of me!
