The skinny kid is now a fugitive, running away with a fellow Russian inmate. They ought to steal from German citizens, in order to eat, protect themselves and go unnoticed during the day. They tie themselves to tree branches at night. While the regime collapses, the United States strike a Japanese city with the first atomic bomb in history.
