This is a video for my generation. I’m Lucia Izmailova. And I can control time. See the future. I was eight years old when I dreamt of World War III. Even though my parents didn’t believe me, I still love them very much. Their wedding anniversary is soon. And I’m preparing a surprise for them. Mom will cook a lot of tasty food. Dad, like always, will sing… And I will dance. They will see what I can do.
