This starts as a clash in personalities that leads to a modern horror story. Or it could be a modern Shakespearian tragedy. Look for the scene with the older man sitting next to his frozen, dead trout. Is this some kind of symbol of his family who no longer live? One lesson is that you shouldn’t perform acts that you will regret, no matter how much trouble you have in communicating with your fellow human beings.

Начальник полярной станции Сергей и молодой стажер Павел — одни на острове в Северном ледовитом океане. Подходит к концу их вахта. Впервые за много лет Сергей окажется на материке, где его дожидается семья. Окончится летняя практика Павла, а он не испытал и сотой доли тех приключений, на которые рассчитывал, отправляясь в Заполярье. Единственный канал общения с миром — неустойчивая радиосвязь с центральной базой. В отсутствие Сергея приходит сообщение, с которым Павел попросту не знает, как поступить. Он надеется, что скоро за ними придет теплоход и тогда все разрешится само собой. Но на Крайнем Севере возможно всё. И иногда приходится выбирать между своей жизнью и жизнью другого…
