The story takes place in the picturesque, isolated scenery of the Danube Delta, Romania. The protagonist is a Russian Lipovan community chased away from Russia three hundred years ago for not accepting the religious reforms of 1666. The film follows three years from the community life, where recent changes and modernization unveil the fragility and vulnerability of a traditional society.
