Nastya, the star of a popular TV series, comes to a sleepy provincial town. She is disillusioned by life and disappointed in herself; and she looks for a fresh start in her life. The only person for her to turn to is her sister, so she moves in with her. NastiaХs arrival heightens the tension in relationships between friends, secrets are no longer secrets, and mysteries stop being mysteries. The provincial town is swept over with love fever. And then, when it seems that everything can be changed, accidental tragedy turns things back.

Having lost his wife in a plane crash, a man tries to find out the real reason for the disaster. Forced to sift through all the lies amassing around him, he temporarily foggets about his grief. He finds a flight crew who survived a crash and celebrates his rebirth with them. Suddenly moments of grief turn into a never-before-experienced flash of freedom for him. This illusion becomes a lulling trap in which he can relive the happiest moments of his life. What we can see on the screen is an ordinary life where simple things become rare and unusual, and where grief turns to joy. Daily routine to which he finally comes back after all shade in a contrast way the brightness of the recent events.

Residents of circumpolar Urengoy travel by train from the permafrost of the North to the sun and the sea. Four and a half thousand kilometres of Russian open spaces, six days of travel. They have plenty of time to clarify any question - from the existence of God to the right of adultery, from the origin of words to the origin of the species...
