by Alexander Vartanov
He is fourteen and he does not like his life at all.
Trying to escape from a dull everyday life where he feels weak and coward, he breaks free in a fantasy world in which he acts noble, generous and fearless.
When he flees home and ends up in a very strict reform school, dreams and reality become one.
