The inhabitants of the Russian town of Prirechnyy have received a letter from the county of Murmansk telling them that their town no longer exists.Still, a handful of retired persons refuse to leave this once-proud mining community. We meet four of them in their absurd, small universe in northern Russia. Aina and Fiodor have been married for fifty-three years. While Aina yearns for her husband's attention, Fjodor is mostly concerned with his vegetable garden. Maria has lost her dear husband and has grown bitter about her two sons. Diana is the town's diva. She dreams about love in a place where there live only five men.
