1980, USSR. Soviet dissident and human rights activist Mustafa Jemilev is exiled in the settlement Zyryanka, north-eastern Siberia, where he has to work at the oxygen station. Three people arrive to him across the huge country with vastly different goals – to meet, to eliminate, to protect. And their drivers are different – love, hate and faith.
