Yusup Razykov directs this Russian drama following the fictional tale of a woman coping with the loss of her husband in the Kursk submarine tragedy. Lena (Maria Semenova) is not like the other women of the bleak Kola military settlement in which she resides. While the others anxiously await the return of their husbands from sea, Lena has a more carefree manner and embarks on an affair with a local fisherman. However, when she learns of the loss of her husband, Lena's return to St. Petersburg reveals a less self-assured side to her identity...
