The scene is interrupted by the entrance of the wife’s friend, whom his wife tells about her affair with Stalin’s twin. A friend in horror persuades her to abandon dangerous acts but his wife does not listen to her.

The shot, Stalin’s twin falls, Stalin appears (a very possible twin too) who orders to wrap the twin’s body in a bag and bury it at night.

Morally destroyed wife understands that it is the end for her too. She asks her friend to bring a gun, which is on the top shelf of the cabinet. Stalin gives her the gun.

Stalin is alone on the stage, in psychological agony, screams about his suspicions-“everyone wants his death”.

Kremlin. The guard (she is wife’s friend) reports on the critical state of Stalin. Beria enters with a note that Stalin allegedly left on the desk.  The guard reads the note by heart:”…if you see that I am dying, if I lose the ability to think, talk and walk, if I become like a living corpse, without delay, ease my death.”

Stalin with his things is waiting for his hour, sometimes watching the preparation of the grave where he will soon move. Lenin wakes up. Stalin is trying to remember the day of his death. Lenin reports that he was poisoned by Beria. The chimes notify that it’s time for Stalin to go out. Before leaving, Stalin decided to reveal to Lenin an important secret –“ I am not the real Stalin, but his oldest twin”. Lenin is disappointed, “where is Koba?”. Stalin doesn’t know, “ I don’t know, maybe he is still alive and hiding somewhere…. I accidentally  got there…”.

Lenin in deep thought appeals to the viewer, “Someone has information …is this the last Stalin?
