Our days, New York, Brighton Beach. He - Wulf Moyhelevich Goldiner - an elderly Russian-speaking immigrant, widower, a little over seventy. She is Mrs. Jane Watson, a beautiful, successful American woman, divorced, a little over thirty.
They were united by a traffic accident: Mrs. Watson, while driving her own car, hit Mr. Goldiner, as a result of which he received moderate injuries. And, although Goldiner himself was responsible for the incident (he was impatient to cross the street to a red light), the court sentenced Mrs. Watson to 80 hours of correctional labor in favor of the victim.
And now, for 10 weeks, every Wednesday and Saturday she is obliged to come to the victim, to spend four hours in his company and to do housework (cleaning, washing, cooking). And, of course, communicate with him.
In the process of this communication, many interesting things are found out.
For example, the fact that Wolf Moyhelevich Goldiner was once Vladimir Mikhailovich Semyonov, lived in Odessa on Franz Mehring Street and worked as an engineer at “Yanvarka” - the name of the January Uprising.
