After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fish processing collective was destroyed. There is no electricity on the island, no work, no doctors, no police. Ivan has only one job opportunity - illegal fishing. He has no choice - he will either catch sturgeon or starve. Sometimes Ivan turns on the generator and proudly watches public television programmes about Russia's sunny future. Anna lived in the city, but fell in love with Ivan and chose the harsh life on the island. Anna and Ivan want their children to have a better life elsewhere, but their son has already started going to sea.
The film is available only on the territory of the Russian Federation.
