Drama. Mitya, a young doctor, lives and practices medicine in the middle of the steppe. Although it appears barren, patients frequently arrive at his home-office Ė one manís heart has stopped beating from heavy drinking, anotherís cow is dying, a young couple are bleeding to death from stab wounds. A local policeman, the only government authority in this vast region, is also a frequent visitor to the doctor. Mityaís fiancee comes to visit him too, but as it turns out, itís not for long. All the while Mitya senses something disturbing lurking nearby, a force that ultimately makes an attempt on the doctorís life. The wild field sees him off, but maybe it is not to die.
