Plot synopsis
The life of Lyoshka, a fifteen-year-old hunter, changes completely with the appearance of a strange young girl from the "computer" who fascinates him. The hero's love for such a distant character, the fuzzy figure of a beautiful stranger, drives him to the most reckless act of his life: embarking on a dangerous journey through the whirlpools of the Bering Strait in search of of the one he loves in an unknown world.
