Deneshkina, Pelevin, and Maslowska describe the reality after a collapse of communism. They concentrate especially on young people who do not have values, affirmative ideals or any authorities. They do not know God, they cannot pray. The characters drink alcohol, take drugs, tell lies, offend each other. They cannot see any differences between truth and falsehood. The authoress shows how difficult and complicated modern times are. Boys and girls are not able to find the aim of their lives, they would like to plan their future, yet it seems to be impossible. Young people miss true love and friendship. Not only do they look for fun and enjoyment but they want responsibility and dignity as well. Characters do not believe in paradise on the earth: they dream about 'real' happiness.
