Winter, in a rural area. Marina, a teacher in her mid-forties, leads a quiet family life with her husband and daughter. But appearances are deceptive. In secret she has an affair with Artem, the father of her student Ulyana. Both have lived in Switzerland for years without a residence permit. When the girl is caught stealing, the game of hide-and-seek comes to light and puts everyone involved in trouble.
