Nadya has lost her belief in orthodox medicine and persuades her husband Andrey to go on a crusade to salutiferous lakes. Being far from his father-in-law Andrey is planning to drop the news about their divorce to Nadya. But the nature has its own plans for the characters. Due to the rain season the level of water in rivers becomes higher and cut the way home. Looking for a bridge Nadya and Andrey are lost in deep Siberian taiga. Their difficult fight with the fears and past mistakes has begun. Taiga is a metaphor of life where the two are lost. Or maybe it is the sacred garden where the chosen ones are back?
