Living with her cat in a small khrushchovka flat at the half-abandoned Severnyi microrayon in the arctic city of Vorkuta, Anna Vasilevna is happy. She is over 90 years old and spent fifteen years in Gulag at 1950s and 1960s. After her imprisonment, she has lived for decades less than ten kilometres from the place where she worked in a forced labour brigade, digging permafrost ground. Anna Vasilevna gets no monetary compensation for that. She has her memories from childhood in Crimea before she was arrested, her cat & her icon on the bedroom wall.
