It has been a long time that I didn`t see you Shmuel.
The guard is changed
I just lost my job
Can you stop acting like you're shooting me?
Consequences for forbidden acts.
I cannot even move a little
Jakov thinks that with the visit of Schmuel people who can do something to help him might now hear about him.
A real nightmare
What do you hide?
I do not have anything, it is the sixth time you check me today.
The warden finds out about the Jakov`s visitor. Zhitnyak, the guard who admits the visit between Schmuel and Yakov, is dismissed from his post and replaced by Berezhinsky, an ex-soldier who practiced his marksmanship using Yakov for a target. But, instead of actually shooting, he just says "Bang."
The return of Raisl
Well. I have a son...
Is there something to share with me?
Yakov uses the spoon that he had been given with his gruel to start digging around a bolt that holds one of his chains. The guard catches him. Thanks to that, as a punishment, at daytimes, Yakov is fastened to the wall and at nights he is fastened to his bed.
Bye Raisl, remember to hide the envelope
Sure, see you, take care.
Jakov hopes that the worst thing that can happen to him is being tied day and night, but he is wrong. Body searches are shown as actions to punish Javok. After a while, body searches begin to be more followed and Javok starts to feel depressed.
Raisl wants to know about Jakov. She says to him that she is no longer what she was. She asks him to forgive the past. She confesses that she has a son called Chaiml and his father did not take care of him. By the way, Schmuel is playing the role of the father, but he is very old.
Yakov then finds out that she has a paper for him to sign a confession. That is why she has been allowed to see him, to talk him into confessing. He refuses. Raisl asks him if he wants to take the role of Chaiml's father. In the confession document, he writes in the signature part that the confession is a lie, while in the envelope, where the document comes, he assumes the paternity of Chaiml. She leaves the room and hides the envelope in her sleeve. Finally, she gives the unsigned confession to the guard.
