Have you washed your face? I have. Let’s have breakfast, then. RETURN TO YOURSELF. Episode Three Wow… It turns out I was very hungry. Why aren’t you eating?
Aren’t pancakes tasty? No, why? I am eating. They are very tasty. What time is it? Quarter to 8. The first client is at 9. I’m being late. It’s all right. I’ll give you a lift. You need to go home to change,
to put yourself in order. I’m fine. -I’ll give you a lift and then go home.
-No! I mean I… It’ll be better if I have some time
to dress up calmly… …and things like that. If it’s “like that”, I’ll go. -See you, then?
-See you. Shall we have dinner tonight? It’s a great idea. Bye. -Hi.
-Hi. Why did you come so early? -Your client will come at 10:30.
-I know. May you cancel? Half an hour before the appointment? No. -Liza, are you finishing?
-No, I’ve just started. We can’t replace you now, Lena.
Has something happened? No, everything is fine. -Hello.
-Hello. -I came a bit earlier.
-Great. Let’s go. -Hi, Maya.
-Hi, honey. Sit down here. I need your help. One moment, I’ll bring a dryer. What has happened? May I stay at your summer cottage
for some time? Of course. What has happened? -Do you have the keys with you?
-I do. Great.
I’ll finish with this client and go. Will you give me the keys and address? -Sure. Will you tell me?
-Of course. Will you come tonight? Of course I will. Andrey shan’t know where I am. OK. You may look. It’s good. Thank you. I like it very much. Thank you. Let me take this off. Here are the keys. -I’ll text you the address.
-Thank. I’ll be waiting for you. -Good morning, Andrey Vladimirovitch.
-Good morning. -Good morning.
-Good morning. Hi. Did you bring the uniform? I decided to train after work. You could warn me. I’d take it too. You caught me red-handed. I train on my own sometimes
to show a better result. I see. And I was wondering about
how you could learn so fast! Women’s tricks. -But I will be in time for dinner.
-I hope. Do you have a minute now?
Shall we drink coffee? -Hello. I have an appointment with Lena.
-I can’t. Highlights! -I won’t distract you. Hello.
-Thanks. -We’re doing highlights, aren’t we?
-Yes, we are. Where is Lena? I don’t know. She asked to replace her. -Maya, where is Lena?
-What? -Where did Lena go?
-I don’t know. Somebody called her and… I understand but it’s a force-majeur.
I’m very sorry again. Galya, what did Lena say when she left? She said nothing. She told me to cancel
all her appointments. What do I do now? Cancel everybody
and offer than 30% discount. Thanks again. I got it. Teterin’s studio.
How may I help you? Galya, I have a free slot for three.
You may book it. Yes, I was calling.
We have a terrible force-majeur. We may offer you a lot for 3 p.m. today… Hello, hi. Let’s do it for nine.
I need to meet with my girlfriend. Yes. Yes, a friend from work. I’ll go there for an hour
and come back to you. Yes. Bye. Hello. Open up, honey. I’m here. -Hi.
-Hi. Tell me what has happened. …and in the morning I woke up… He was frying pancakes in the kitchen. I went out unto the corridor, stumbled against his backpack
and found a file there. -I see.
-That file contained materials about me. About the rape… the court hearing… the photos
from the beauty contest. He has an entire dossier on me,
do you understand? Wow… Do you remember the moment
when you wanted to leave? He came to me that evening
and asked me to talk you into staying. So it means… No, it’s some nonsense. He moved to another city,
found you, bought a salon… I don’t know. It seems too complicated. What does he need it for? Raping me wasn’t enough for him. He began following me. I think he wanted something more. He wanted me to do it on my free will. He made me trust him… He made me fall in love with him. He made me want him. Oh, God! I was making love with a person
who had raped me. I’ll be sick now. What are you going to do? I’ll move to another city. You’ve already moved. Maybe we shall go to the police? And? What will I show them? No, thank, I have already been there.
I’ll manage on my own. -I see…
-Whom are you calling? Oleg. I’ll tell him I won’t come tonight. I’ll stay here with you today. -Maya, go.
-How can I leave you alone? Really, go! You said yourself
that he won’t find me here. Go! No, Lena, I won’t leave you in such state. Please. I want to be alone. -Are you sure?
-I am. Lena? -Lena, open up, please.
-Get out! Get out, I’m calling the police. What police?
I don’t understand what is going on, Lena! “Of course you don’t!
I saw the photos; I saw the cut-outs!” Police. I’m listening. -Wait, you…
-What has happened? Do you think that I’m a… rapist? Hello. This is the police. Listen, Lena, I… I’m the brother of Sergey Boyko. The brother of a guy
who got in prison because of you. We’re listening. What has happened? Hello? Can you talk? Hello? Are you in danger? But you… you told me
that your brother was murdered. He was. In prison.
In a year after the court. Why? Why was he killed? I don’t know. I think it’s difficult to be there
if people believe you’re a rapist. Moreover, if you’re fighting back. Lena, open up.
I won’t offend you, I promise. I could do it many times. What do you need me for? I need your help. Lena, open! I beg you. I feel very sorry for your brother. He didn’t rape me. It was important for me to hear that. Then why did you tell the jury
that he did? I got confused.
I didn’t see the rapist’s face. I wasn’t sure whether it was him or not. The investigator showed me
evidence against Sergey. They were very… convincing. And later… that bastard called me. I ran to the police at once. I told them about the call
but they didn’t believe me. I know that I should have fought. I know that I should have done something
but I was all alone. I was very scared. I… simply ran away. Yes. I simply ran away. Why did you find me?
Why did you buy the salon? What for? I wanted to know how it all had happened. -What about asking?
-Asking? How? I didn’t believe
that Sergey did it to you. But you recognized him
and signed the papers. What did you need it for? I…
Maybe you were covering up for somebody? I didn’t know. Maybe there was no rape at all. I didn’t know why you sent him to prison. I needed to… make you talk and make you… trust me. Trust? Do you remember our first meeting? I failed to contain myself. When I saw you…
I as if went out of my mind. But later I realized that…
you were scared to death yourself. Don’t tell me you felt sorry for me.
Just don’t. I’m very… very sorry that it happened so with your brother. And… It’s my fault. I’m sorry. You got what you wanted. You found out everything that you wanted.
You may go now. I need a trace. -A trace?
-I don’t know. Something that will help me find
that bastard. In all criminal databases,
my brother is branded as a rapist. All his friends
and close people believe that he did it. I must correct it. Andrey, how can I help you? Do you think I don’t want
to catch that bastard? Do you think I don’t want
to stop being frightened? That I don’t want to go home?
Get my surname back? But I have no idea how to do it! If I find him,
will you testify in the court? If you find him,
I’ll do anything to send him to prison. OK. I’m sorry that you found out
about it like this. I wanted to tell you about it yesterday. You did, didn’t you? You should have done it right after sex,
while still in bed. Damn it, Lena…
Do you really think that it was easy? I have been blaming you
for my brother’s death for a year! I kept imagining how I’d see you,
how I’d make you confess… that it was you who set him up. But I didn’t expect that… I liked you.
And it wasn’t a part of my plan. Vera, I need you so much now!Lena? Lena, is that you? God, Lena!Vera, hi.Lena… Where are you? Are you all right?Are you in our town?No, I’m in another town.
I miss you so much. -Stop it!
-I wish you saw his eyes!-Are you serious?
-I am.…and you decided to live together,
didn’t you?We had no other choice after such a thing.You’re lucky, Vera. Vera, I wish I could be in your kitchen
right now. Open a bottle of wine…Do come! Buy a ticket and come today!Lena… Lena, well? Lena, please!Maybe I will come. OK, I…
I won’t distract you from washing socks.Very funny. Don’t disappear!-Bye. I will call you.
-She will call! You better come!Sasha Smirnova, hi!Hi, honey.Are you still there? Talk to me.Why do you keep silence?Talk to me, honey! Well?Where did you get Sasha Smirnova’s phone?-It’s a souvenir… for good memories.
-Where is Sasha?Why are we talking about her?Neither she nor the other girls
may compare to you.I tasted them…but they are not you.That’s why I got rid of them fast.What do you mean? Is Sasha alive?It doesn’t matter.What matters is that
we have an anniversary.You shan’t miss it.I don’t want to satisfy myself
with other girls anymore!I don’t understand. What anniversary?I’m talking about a day
when I took your pendant off your neck.By the way,
I’m now holding it in my hands…remembering your silky skin…I shall release emotions…
release emotions… Lena? Who called? Don’t worry. I’m on my way. Well… One moment… Excuse me… Hello?-Vera, are you very busy today?
-Have you come?I am coming for a couple of days.Be quiet. Don’t tell anybody about it. OK?OK. When are you coming?In a couple of hours.
I’ll call you when I arrive.OK, I’m waiting! Come on, fast… let’s continue. Lena? -Here you go.
-Thanks. What more did he say? I told you about it five times. I don’t know… maybe you forgot
or skipped something. He talked about the anniversary,
said that he missed me. By the way… he said that he was holding
my pendant in his hands. What pendant?
The one found in Sergey’s car? Yes. The police had to give it back to you
right after the court hearing. The pendant wasn’t on my mind
after the court. Plus, I doubt that I would wear it anyway. But if you didn’t take it then, it should still be
in the archive of material evidence. It should. But it’s with that psycho. Lenka! Lenka, you’re so… -Look!
-It’s so beautiful! -Is it your boyfriend?
-No, just a friend. -Andrey.
-Vera. Nice to meet you. -Vera, we need your help.
-Of course. One, two, three, four.
Breathe, Nina Anisimovna. Three… First, Nastya Yegorkina.
She studied in school no. 2. No, I don’t know her. She was found after the Day of the City.
Two years ago. She hung herself on a tree. Her earrings and a phone were missing,
so… That is what the newspapers wrote,
at least. Did they close the case as a suicide? Of course.
However, her mother doesn’t believe it. Then our Sasha, Sasha Smirnova.
A year ago. -During the Day of the City as well.
-I still can’t believe it. Everybody was in shock.
It happened on the Day of the City too. Now people are scared to celebrate it. Vera, was Sasha’s death
considered a suicide too? No. Her boyfriend was accused. -Stop it! Danya?
-Yes. -Was he imprisoned?
-Yes. The neighbors heard them quarreling
on the eve of her death. He was jealous or something like that.
He threatened to kill her. People say silly things when they quarrel. I don’t know.
People say it was him indeed. First, he raped her, and then strangled. He took off the ring
which he had given her. When taking it off,
he broke her finger, bastard! It seems to you that you know person
all your life and then… It’s just terrible! Lena? -Hi.
-Hi. Hello. Are you back? -As you see.
-So unexpectedly! You look great! Thank you. -I’ll go.
-Good luck. Yeah. See you. -An old acquaintance?
-A local reporter. A sly guy. It’s so weird. I haven’t been here
for almost three years. Lena… I haven’t seen you for ages! Hello, Tamara Markovna. What is it? I’m hurrying for a rehearsal. -Will you perform at the Day of the City?
-Yes. Come to listen! -Of course.
-Good bye. Good bye. I think we shall visit the girls’ parents. Maybe they’ll tell us something. I’ll find out the addresses,
and we’ll visit them tomorrow. Your house is so nice. Lena, are you all right? Lena? Lena! Lena? Lena, stop! Lena! Stop! Calm down! Calm down, calm down.
Calm down. Look at me. Everything is all right. Do you hear? Very good. Fine. Here. Calm down. I’m here. You have nothing to afraid off. Where do these roses come from? He left them. He came to my apartment
and left the roses. That was when I lost it. I ran out of the apartment
and left the town. I enter my apartment,
look at these ten roses and it seems to me that he is standing here,
breathing in my neck. I still don’t know whether he was here
and whether it just seemed to me. Andrey, I’m sorry but I think
I won’t be able to do it. Look, Lena. You found strength to leave then. Now, you became even stronger. You returned and you won’t come back. I will. No, you won’t come back
because he is here. He is here, walking your native streets. Nobody knows him
so he continues to rape and kill. And innocent guys sit in prison
instead of him. I understand it very well.
But what plan do we have? Shall we gather all the evidence
and go to the police… What if they don’t believe it? We’ll find him ourselves. Lena… how are you? Is everything fine? I can’t sleep in this room. Let me sleep here.
You may stay in the living room. OK. Good night. -Good morning.
-Good morning. Do you have coffee? I found it. I’m not sure you may drink it.
It’s three years old. It’s coffee. It doesn’t spoil.
How did you sleep? I slept well. I didn’t even understand
where I was. I have the addresses. We may go to Yegorkina’s mother first,
and then to Sasha’s parents. -Great. Will you have coffee?
-No, thank you. What do you want? Hello. My name is Lena and this is Andrey. We’d like to talk about your daughter.
And about what had happened. I don’t want to talk about it. Wait, please. We think
that your daughter had been killed. Who are you? We are… I suffered too. I think I was attacked by the same man
who killed your daughter. OK, let’s go. Do you really want to find him? We do. I failed to prove anything to the police.
I think you will fail too. Did you have some evidence? I brought them all I had.
But they only mocked at me. What did you bring them? I brought the letter
and told them about the roses. Somebody sent them to Nastya
on the day of her death. There were ten roses.
She didn’t know who sent it. A letter?
What did you say about the letter? I found it later. In a week or so. The letters in it were cut out
of magazines, like in some movie. -Do you still have it?
-No, I… I didn’t know I would need it. I also got a letter with cut out letters. It’s already something. Do you have it? No. I thought that it was somebody’s joke
and threw it into the bin. What was written there? I don’t remember.
Something like “You’ll be mine, honey”. He called me “honey” on the phone. The roses must have been the same as
on your bed. Hi, Danya. Lena? What are you doing here? Hi. I’m Andrey, Lena’s friend. What are you doing here? Danya, what has happened? If you’re here,
it means somebody has already told you. They have. But it’s not true, right? What do you think? I loved her so much. Every day, I imagine going out of here and finding that bastard. He raped her… My Sashka. And then he strangled her. You couldn’t justify yourself. Justify? They planted the ring which that bastard
had taken off her finger. I didn’t have an alibi. Before that, we quarreled. We shouted at each other so loudly
that all neighbors heard us. Why did you quarrel? I got jealous. She posted a photo
with a bouquet in a social network. I asked her where the flowers came from.
And she said: “I don’t know”. What do you mean – I don’t know?
I got crazy. Danya, were those flowers roses? I don’t remember.
Maybe there were roses… Danya, how many were there? Are you serious? How do I know?
The bouquet… Look at her page if it isn’t deleted yet.
The photo shall be there. Thank you, Danya. You’re welcome. What is wrong with your face? It doesn’t matter. The boy is sitting for nothing. -He was sentenced to 15 years!
-So you’re sure that it wasn’t him. He is like a son to me.
I have known him since he was a child. He used to come with flowers…
when he was still little. My Sasha met him in the nursery. At school, they used to sit at one desk. Did you think about
who it might have been? I was thinking about
every single man around. I don’t know. I don’t know who could have done it
to my daughter. But it was the person
who sent her a letter. What letter?
With the letters cut out of a magazine? Yes. How do you know? Do you have it? Can you give it to us? Yes. But I took it to the police
and they said that it was some joke. They didn’t even add it to the case. I’ll bring it now. One moment. You… just help Danya. He’ll die there, poor guy. We’ll get him out of there. OK. OK. Deryugin is listening.People came regarding Smirnova’s case.What do you mean? Does somebody want
to open this case again?Yes. They say they have new evidence.-What evidence?
-I don’t know but they filed a statement.-I got you.
-Whom shall I send the statement to?-I’ll look at it myself.
-I don’t get you. You’ll do it?-Yes, I will! Bring them to me!
-Aye-aye.-Follow me. I’ll show you the way.
-At last! Do you realize that this is too little
to open the closed case and join it with another two? Are you serious? The letters and roses
are a handwriting of a serial killer. Young man… Andrey Vladimirovitch.
I introduced myself. Andrey Vladimirovitch, I don’t think you may teach me
how to work. Out of three victims, one has a letter,
the second one – a bouquet of roses and the third one is sitting
in front of me. Alive. There are not three letters
or three bouquets of roses… and not three bodies, excuse my cynicism. The relatives of the victims testify that each of the girls
received a letter and roses. And?
How many roses were there is the bouquets? Nobody can say! Because the roses went rotten,
only one letter is left, and we don’t have either photos
or other letters. OK. What about Sasha Smirnova’s phone? We’re trying to check it.
But the phone was lost. Anyone could use the SIM card. I’m sorry
but it’s not a piece of evidence too. No, I understand everything. The city is small,
everybody knows each other. Weird things happen,
and you want to calm the crowd down. You don’t want
to give the people a reason to panic. You did it by closing the cases as fast
as you could. Of course, I understand you. Andrey Vladimirovitch, do you want to say that I sent an innocent boy to prison? That he was an innocent sheep? Yes, and he was not the only one. I gave 30 years to this work. I was cleansing the town from bastards who live here… and I’m still doing it. That Danila first raped the girl cruelly and then strangled her.
For 15 minutes. With a linens rope. He was watching blood vessels pop
in her eyes. I won’t let some arrogan guy
from the capital tell me in my office that I work badly! All right. We got you. Thanks. Come on. If you find out some facts
and not suppositions, you’re welcome come. Excuse me… can I take the pendant
which was taken off me after the rape? It is still with you. -Didn’t we give it back to you?
-You didn’t. Yes, maybe. We’ll give it back to you
in the course of five working days. I’d like to take it today. It’s impossible. The archive of material evidence
is closed for repair words. -Good bye.
-Good bye. Have a good day. End of Episode Three
