Not much in Vera Putina's 77-year existence distinguishes her from all those other Russian women who grew up and grew old in the Soviet Union. Until, in 1999, she recognized in Vladimir Putin, the son she thought was lost forever. Did the son that Vera thought was lost, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, really become the President of Russia? For Vera, it is beyond doubt that her Vova got that far. And not only Vera is convinced of it, her daughters and the other inhabitants of the Georgian village of Metechi are sure that the ten-year old who disappeared so long ago, must be the same as the man who is now President. Her memories and her belief in the dream that she will eventually embrace her child once more are so strong that you would wish every lost child in the world on her.
