Aist is a middle-aged bachelor who lives in a lonely town in Northern Russian. He, and many others in the town, identify as Meryan – an indigenous people who were assimilated into Russia in the Middle Ages. One day his boss Miron tells him that his wife has died overnight, and asks Aist to join him on a trip to the sacred Oka River to perform the traditional Meryan cremation rites. What ensues is a tale of sex, love and loss, where both men discover more than they bargained for.
