Yuri dedicated his life to his country and from an early age wanted to serve Mother Russia. Rising from commander of a motorised rifle platoon to senior officer of a military district operations department in Afghanistan. The sleepwalking only started occurring when Yuri returned home from service. At the start his wife Natasha would find him standing in the dark, always in the exact same place, the hallway, facing the front door and mumbling to himself. Then the neighbours would wake Natasha with a phone call demanding she collect him from their front yard. They put bars on the windows and deadlocked the doors, this contained the problem at home. Yuri has now started travelling with his new job within the government, staying in hotels makes it impossible to curb the behaviour. Ironically Natasha finds herself not being able to sleep while he is away, worrying about the consequences of his colleagues discovering his condition, or something terrible happening while he isn’t fully conscious.
