    • Synopsis
    • An employee of some society makes house-to-house, he’s going to people who have to die this day, with a receipt on which they have to put a tick in front of «Roughly I am satisfied with my life». Ivan Sergueevich Bulkin refuses to do it and the employee enters his flat by using forces. During the dialogue, we discover that the destiny of Bulkin is written beforehand, the employee has in his briefcase the scenario of Bulkin’s life, and Bulkin could nothing against the fate: he just has to tick and then, obviously he has to die. Bulkin tries to struggle, he tries to shoot the employee dead, he jumps on place in a ridiculous way, he pronounces meaningless sentence. The employee takes out the scenario and reads aloud all that Bulkin has just made. Bulkin tears the scenario. Then the employee takes out another copy. For a little moment Bulkin succeeds in frustrating the inevitability of destiny: he goes out by running in the corridor of the building, calls the lift, making fun of the employee. But the lift is out of service and Bulkin falls in the lift shaft. The employee, thrown into a panic, puts the tick on the receipt with the own hand of Bulkin, who’s lying dead in the basement.
      But… In the last picture of the film, Bulkin’s hand covered with gauze, which takes the mail in the post box, leaves the question of the inevitability of destiny open.
