One day Sabina has a dream in which she sees a perfect place to live, far from civilisation. In order to find it, she sets off for the Altai Mountains with her husband Sergei and their one-year-old daughter Yasya. The journey becomes a trial for the couple: Sabina has no desire to help with childcare, keeping things tidy or preparing meals, while Sergei grows weary of the never-ending drama. As their mutual resentment grows, Sabina’s dream becomes ever more detached from reality. But the journey goes on.
