Kotov lives an idyllic country life with his lovely wife Maroussia (Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė), and their feisty daughter Nadia (Nadezhda Mikhalkova). On this day, the Kotovs are visited by the roguishly handsome Dimitri, who was a former lover of Maroussia. Dimitri (Oleg Menshikov) is on a dark mission that may have profound effects on Kotov’s peaceful, happy, and idealistic existence.
