Lina wakes up in the dark and hears a noise outside. She looks out to see a very badly beaten Andrius. She jumps down out of the car to help him, and Lina and others help hoist him up. Lina is then pulled up without the guards noticing. When Lina sees the horrible injuries that Andrius has sustained from the guards, she feels even more hatred for the NKVD than before.
Despite the earlier hostilities between Lina and Andrius, she is sympathetic to anyone who is at the mercy of the NKVD. Like Lina, Andrius longs to find his father, but unlike her, he cannot find him and gets caught doing so. The NKVD will use any excuse to exact brute force upon the deportees.
