A story about a community of Armenians, refugees from the USSR during the Baku pogroms, living in a deep American province. Baku life, Armenian blood, Soviet mentality and American emigration mixed in an incredible tragicomic proportion. Everyone went through the “Events”, as they call the war in Nagorno-Karabakh (the word itself is taboo). Everyone was forced to flee "in pajamas." The Armenian cemetery in Baku was asphalted. They were expelled from the city in 1988. They were not allowed out of the Soviet Union. The union collapsed. America accepted. They have been living in the USA for 30 years, everything is fine, they have adapted to a new life (financially). But thoughts remained in the USSR.
