Plot synopsis
Alexander Viktorovich lives not far from the village of Mokhovoye, on the banks of a pond. It’s a commercial enterprise where he breeds fish for sale. Every day fishermen come to him to relax and do a spot of fishing. His age and poor health mean that Alexander Viktorovich finds any activity difficult, but the maintenance of the pond requires constant and demanding physical labour. So what is it that keeps him by the pond, separated from his relatives?
