A film team from Austria moves into the Russian city of Jutanovka. Under the pretext of shooting a historical film, relationships begin to develop between the villagers and the film crew, blurring documentary and cinematic borders. An equally strict and mischievous exploration in black-and-white in which a mysterious gas stirs up trouble and mushrooms glow between recited poems.
