I was a seventh grader in January of 1980 when I got a Soviet pen-pal. Our Russian teacher handed out some envelopes with Cyrillic writing on them saying that from now on these were our pen-pals. I was lucky because mine was a girl from Moscow. We corresponded with each other for three years and though we never met in person, I have kept all of her letters. And now I have decided to find her and make a film about our childhood during the socialist regime.
