Experiencing Interruptions?

She's Alive

Nikita studies at an educational institution and lives with his parents. He has no common interests with his peers. He does not like to go to school and has little idea what awaits him in the future, all because he feels like a fragile girl trapped in a man's body. Nikita can only be sincere in front of his only friend Masha, who understands him. Nikita tries to look as inconspicuous as possible in public, and only at home alone with himself does he/she feel good. Nikita tries to try on a female image, and only in this form does he /she really like himself. Nikita's mother suspects that something incomprehensible is happening to her son, but due to her domineering nature, she cannot build a dialogue with him and every time everything ends in a scandal. Nikita's father does not delve into the personal life of the family, has a penchant for drinking, is present in the life of the family as an irritating factor.
Once again, finding her son at home in a female image, the mother becomes enraged and provokes a conflict. Nikita closes himself in the room, his mother knocks on the door and threatens a mental hospital. After hearing terrible words from his mother that it would be better if she strangled him as a child, Nikita lets his mother into the room. The mother bursts in and slaps him and leaves. In shocked feelings Nikita opens the window. Outside the window is night and falling snow. Nikita opens his eyes, sunlight falls on his face. His hair looks like a woman's hands. He sees the blurry face of a smiling Masha in front of him. Then, focusing his gaze, he sees the face of his mother, who looks at him with love. Then the mother's face is replaced by the serious face of the doctor who says: "She is alive."
