Drunk at noon on a Sunday and bearing the marks of an alcohol-induced brawl from the night before, two young men talk about their life in Selishchye, a village built under the Soviet Union for and now being sustained by a collective farm on April 2, 2006. Although they earn very little, the villagers, who almost all work at the collective farm, were enticed with a free apartment and some appliances to live here and, most importantly, are pleased to earn a steady monthly paycheck from the government.
