Robert has returned to Texas but he writes to Elena every week and wonders if she might visit him.
He explains that he can get her a visitors' visa if she goes as his fiancée but Elena explains that it is not getting into America that is the difficult part but getting out of the USSR.
They both understand that there is only one way to achieve this - but are they ready to get married?
