After the collapse of any empire, human destinies are crushed under the rubble. Yasha's fate is the tragicomic story of an ordinary Soviet worker, who has served faithfully all his life in an unpleasant production and now cannot come to terms with the changed realities. He continues to live in a country that no longer exists. The dead continue to bury the living.
