Depiction of Belarusian reality through eyes of young rock music bands that are in opposition with Lukashenka's regime. Does Belarus have any chances for changes similar to the ones in Ukraine? The authors try to find an answer to this question. Svieta is 21-years old. She is a lead siinger in one of the rock bands. She finds herself to be a patriot. She believes that Belarus will gain freedom and independence. Lavon Volski, on the other hand, who is a leader of a rock band called Independent Dreams Republic, is much more sceptical of the reality in the country.
