The little town of Orlean stands on the coast of a salt lake in the Altai steppes. The arrival of a strange gentleman who claims to be an executioner, severely disturbs the town. He brings home to everyone the seemingly self-evident truths: everyone will have to pay for the skeletons in his cupboard. From now on the life of the sexy hairdresser Lida, the local surgeon Rudolph and the investigator Nevolin will never be the same. (Moscow International Film Festival)
