Meet Zhenya Gorevich - an irrepressible idealist baffled by life.

In the cut-throat arenas of pre-school spelling tests, teenage football and Socialist Art competitions, he is beset by contradictions and absurdities.

As his eyes open to love, life (and Lenin), he struggles to reconcile his own reality with the world about him: Soviet Russia, where the future is certain, but the past is unpredictable and the truth always negotiable.

So when his mother confesses the unlikely secret of his parentage, Zhenya knows he must go west, find his long-lost father and save his mother from the neighbours' small-minded vitriol. His impossible quest takes him from provincial Vitebsk to Moscow and finally to London and the 1966 World Cup...
