A teenager with a fur hat and a green coat. Give him a Kalashnikow and he's not going to be the same teenager. Possibly not even a teenager anymore.

Alexander Aksakov spent 365 days in a Russian military base during the compulsory draft. He managed to sneak in a Smena camera and some rolls of film and brought back a rare document of an unrequested rite of passage. In his silent diary Alexander recorded images of the long winter and its idle times inside the base, the bewildered faces of the recruits, the spring country outings with AK-74s, dreaming of running away.
