"Something with the phone" is a short feature film based on the fantastic story by Kir Bulychev " Can I ask Nina?".

In the apartment of Vadim Nikolaevich, guests gathered to celebrate the New Year with a cheerful company. The owner of the apartment unsuccessfully tries to call his friend Nina. He dials the number, gets to the girl, who is also called Nina. Her answers seem strange to Vadim Nikolaevich, until he realizes that in some unusual way he is talking to a child from Moscow in 1942.

Remembering his hungry military childhood, the hero tells the girl that in one of the Moscow courtyards in Trubnikovsky Lane, she can find bread cards that he dropped while playing with the guys.

The next day, Vadim Nikolaevich found out the address of the girl from the old telephone directory and went to her, not understanding what he could expect from this meeting. The house he was looking for was demolished during the construction of the New Arbat, but he manages to establish that Nina moved to the Southwest, and find her apartment.

They don't open the door for him. A neighbor who came to the stairwell says that Nina Frolova left with her husband for Central Asia. When the woman learns the name of the guest, she takes out the letter left for him. Vadim Nikolaevich understands that Nina has been waiting for his visit all these years.
