Emergency Brake

Student: Denis Maslakov

Supervisor: Maya A. Kucherskaya

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Creative Writing (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2020

The emergency brake is not the most visible detail in the train. To break the stop crane is to stop your train urgently, to move to another. Most of us prefer not to leave our train during our lifetime, but some of us decide it. What could make a man make such a radical gesture? Danger, frustration in your own beliefs, or vice versa strengthening in them? What damage will the breakdown of the emergency brake cause to those who did not want to leave their train at all? A few stories below are about those who did decide: get out of the game, break the system, ruin the script, stop and listen to yourself.
