Date November 23, 2018

No matter how great our current life is, our hearts are sometimes nostalgic for the past. Let's look back at the nineties. That period was somebody's youth and somebody else's childhood.

Many films from the nineties have not lost their relevance and are still as popular as ever. It doesn't even matter that these films are a world away from today's special effects, gloss, and action. They still give us warm and happy feelings and emotions.

The editor's office assigns her a story about high school students, their problems, and typical teenage life. Most importantly, the reportage should be scandalous, piquant, and necessarily in the first person.
