All right Aren’t you afraid I’ll come see Katya on my way home? Tell her about what happened here? Do it But think about your friendship with Katya on your way home Do you think she’ll forgive you?

Want to meet up, have some tea, chat? Why are you so happy? I have some news I know about your news I’ve seen it. I’ll send you the link I want you to remember this night forever What is this? I don’t know, Katya I guess someone filmed us with a spy cam I’ll figure it out Alisa sent this video to me I don’t even want to think about how many people have seen it already. In this town! Everybody’s going to point at me and laugh! Katya, listen… I’ll find some hackers, they’ll delete it from the internet I went to the police. I wrote a report Let them find whoever did this Katya, calm down, calm down Why do we need the police? We can handle it ourselves I can’t calm down! They put it out for everyone to see, the most intimate thing I have! -Hello -Yekaterina Sergeevna, good day One moment Please give me the keys to the hall Why? I have class with the girls in half an hour Yekaterina Sergeevna, you’re dismissed from the classes That’s a demand by the parents of your students They think your behavior is incompatible with a teacher’s job My conduct? The video, of you and a man It was filmed illegally I reported it to the police You’re not a child You know what this is What, no other girls in this town sleep with young men? Excuse me, but we don’t see that in every detail All right When the police sorts it out, we’ll hire you back But for now, give me the keys, please We have checked the footage from the security cameras in the hotel Canvassed the staff A spy cam couldn’t have been installed in that room What do you mean, it couldn’t have been? There were no guests in that deluxe suite for a month before Dmitriy Brykin The maid cleaned it all up before you came By the way, we checked the maid out, she’s beyond suspicion We didn’t find any sign of a spy cam Where did that recording come from, then? Our experts have analyzed the recording Checked the angle, the technical details Here, look The device that recorded that video was installed on the nightstand by the bed That can’t be true Only Dima’s phone was there No, he wouldn’t do this We have a record of Dmitriy Brykin’s interrogation
Here, take a look She just wanted to remember that night together forever Did you post the video online? No, of course not Why would I do it? I guess my phone was hacked And someone downloaded it through Bluetooth I have no idea who could have done it That’s not true I never asked for that All right We have a witness statement Here Here you go Boss, I met them at the joint by accident And I heard something in passing And when the video turned up, I got the full picture What exactly did you hear? Well… What was it Vavilova, she was telling Brykin she had big plans for that night And he asked her, like, are you sure you want it? And she nods and goes, “Yeah, I want to remember that night forever.” Yekaterina Sergeevna Are you going to drop the case? Why would I? You asked him to record it yourself In the presence of a witness In which case We have nothing on Mr Brykin I didn’t ask him to make that recording And I definitely didn’t ask him to upload it Find the one who stole the video from Dima That’s your job All right I’ll do my job And I’ll start with a criminal case On you, Yekaterina Sergeevna -Me? -Yeah I have grounds to believe that you knew about the video of you In which case, I can classify your report as attempted perjury And besides, distribution of pornography is still illegal Yekaterina Sergeevna As a human being, I feel for you But you have to realize this isn’t a movie No one’s going to find that hacker in three minutes The case is a dead end Do you understand? What do I have to sign? Here you go Come on Wait Have you decided? You have to go to the police right now and tell them the truth I never asked him to record me You couldn’t have heard it And if I don’t, then what? You lied Now everyone in town is laughing at me Katya Everything in life has a price Your beloved Dima wanted my money in his business so much that he had to Make that video Dima For money? But how? It’s very simple He didn’t know the video would end up online He came up to me, went ballistic, waved his hands at me But as soon as he got his dough, he calmed down Why would you do it? Well, you didn’t want to date me Shot me down Kept me at arm’s length, so to speak Did you think I’d forgive and forget? I don’t do that So now the whole town knows you Every pimply teenager imagines himself next to you
Disgusting Fell for an out-of-town slick? Now you’ll be more discerning in who you get with I don’t believe you Dima couldn’t have done this He loves me Yeah, I’ve seen him love you Want to come take a look for yourself? Katya Katya, everything’s going to be all right You’ll find a new job And the gossip will die down, and everything’s going to be okay You hear me? How? How could anyone do something like that, how? I can’t believe Dima would do this Maybe you should have gotten to know him better before jumping in bed with him Like how? Hire a detective? Why not? It’s that you You were blinded by your love, Katya The men who flocked about you, I can only dream about them Men? You mean Ignatenko? I told you, you shouldn’t have dumped him You were being all hoity-toity Happy now? Don’t come with me, I can show myself out Sit down Stop What? You embarrassed me and your mother How do we look people in the eye now? Did we bring you up like that? Did we? I was tricked I don’t want to hear anything You jumped in bed with him yourself No one made you Wanted to remember that night, you whore? Sit down! You brought up a whore Why won’t you believe me? I’m your daughter You’re not my daughter anymore Dad Katya! Where are you going to go? Stay, baby Mom, you heard him. I’m not welcome You father is mad, he’ll get over it I’ll talk to him You know what he’s like Yeah. I know Be safe, baby -Here -Mom To get you started I’m sorry, baby Hello, Dima I have to see you -Dima, hello? -Come to the hotel, then Okay Let’s leave town
I can’t take this anymore I can’t leave I just signed an agreement for my business, for at least six months It’s a lucrative partnership Partnership? With Ignatenko? Yeah, him So you Sold me out to him Katya So everything you said was a lie Every confession of love, all our dreams about our future, all a lie You’re so pathetic You -You never loved me -I did I loved you, Katya Try to understand My project was stalling, the investors were demanding money, making threats I didn’t think Ignatenko would upload that video Did you think he would just keep it? I didn’t have a choice There’s always a choice There is no future for our relationship I can’t live with a woman that everyone in town has seen from every angle Katya, please. Go. Go But it’s you You ruined my life And now you’re blaming me? Why am I the one who has to run? I’ll give you money for a ticket You know, I’m positive you knew from the start that you were going to give that video to Ignatenko I don’t even know which one of you is a bigger bastard Here’s your ticket to the capital It leaves at 5:30 AM Thank you 7 YEARS LATER Lady, I asked to make it hot And you didn’t even put it into the microwave I’m sorry. There must have been a mistake at the kitchen. I’ll take care of it Well, happy birthday! Hooray! What are you talking about? I demand my advance back on the apartment you suddenly decided not to rent Where am I supposed to spend the night? I’ll come to you with the police, I swear Hi Hi What are you doing here?
