Synopsis

Sergei, an experienced meteorologist, and Pavel, a high school graduate, are now the only inhabitants of the polar station on a remote island in the Arctic Ocean. Soon a ship will arrive to pick them up.
For Sergei this will mean the end of a sojourn of several years. He is eager to return to his wife and child on the mainland. For his part, Pavel has had hopes that he might yet be able to experience the kind of real adventure he was dreaming of when he volunteered for an internship in this desolate region. And then one day when Sergei is out angling, Pavel picks up a radio message that he does not dare to communicate to Sergei. Pavel does everything he can to keep the message from Sergei, in the hope that the ship’s arrival will relieve him of this particular task. Since everything is possible in the North Pole, sometimes one has to choose between his life and the life of another person…
