On the Chechnya and Ingushetia border there is a fenced-in mental institution. The war is somewhere nearby, but there is a special life here with its own values and complicated relationships. One day all the staff of the hospital vanishes, and the patients enjoy freedom by turning the hospital upside down. Suddenly a Chechen military group appear and a Russian unit following them. The shots are heard. The insanity of the war breaks into the world of the patients.
Yuliya Vysotskaya plays the leading part of a mental patient Zhanna whose only chance for survival is love.
