Child 44DVD - 2015
In 1953 Soviet Russia, secret police agent Leo Demidov loses status, power, and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa, as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up by Leo's psychopathic rival Vasili, who insists, 'there is no crime in paradise.'

Raisa: You were rude.
Leo: I was not rude.

... Days later ...
Leo: But then I found you somehow. 8:15 A.M. same train platform that I met you before. Then I asked you...Well, I convinced you to walk with me that day.
