    The story is built around a group of people: Yana, Alissa, Olesya, Vitya, Lena, Andrei, Igor, Sanya, Zhenya, Dima, Ilya, Tolik, Vaike, Sasha, Jekaterina, Pyotr, Oleg, Maksim, Vladimir, and Katya. The days and nights of all these people do not differ much from each other. They all share something - they share the same fate of the Isle of Crows. It is like a bad dream that no one can escape. Where can they run from it? Where is the city that offers salvation? The nostalgia for the good old Soviet days is mixed with the rage for lives wasted on lies. Is there hope for lives to be rebuilt from these ruins?
