My Friend Alexander Grigorievich

Alexander Grigorievich is a lonely man. Both his sons emigrated abroad many years ago: each has his own family and spares no thought for his father. His relationship with his ex-wife has gone sour: they are not interested in each other’s lives. He collects scrap metal at garbage dumps and hands it over at drop-offs, and only his cat waits for him at home.
