The inhabitants of the Russian town of Prirechnyy have received a letter from the province of Murmansk informing them that their town no longer exists. Still, a handful of senior citizens refuse to move from the once-proud mining town. We meet four of them in this absurd little universe in northern Russia.
Aina and Fyodor have been married for 53 years. While Aina pines for attention from her husband, Fyodor is primarily preoccupied with his vegetable garden. Maria has lost her beloved husband and is bitter at her two sons. Diana is the town's diva. She still dreams of love in a town with only five male inhabitants.
