Valentin Stepanovich spends most of his days by the window, holding a phone and waiting. He misses his wife Klavdia . Again and again he tries to reach her over the phone which has become his only connection with the outside world.
The character's life is life of a recluse. He's got no heating, electricity or water supply. Nontheless, he finds meaning and joy in his existence: he's waiting for his beloved.
The film observes the character's life with immense attention to detail. The mosaic of images that captures pieces of his world creates a contemplation on the nature of human soul.
