Natalia lives at the train station, near the tracks. Every day, she milks the cow and her husband sells the milk to passengers on the trains that go through the station. Her husband took Natalia from a children’s home, when she was 16. Since then, her life has been circling around the house, pigsty, and trains, which pass near her curtainless window, going to some unknown, entirely different world... Natalia does not love her husband, but she is incapable of imagining her life without him. This continues, until the husband dies of a heart attack. The woman must learn to live all by herself. Her house is now full of music and she has a dog Koshchey, a goat Berta, a mirror, and a driver — Sergei. However, Natalia does not want to lose her newly regained freedom and sets on a journey...
