It is the story of a woman and a boy, Izabele and Ilja. At the same time it is the story about family, between a man and a woman, about everlasting longing for something what we can not give to each other.

The only scene that seems to work is the last and very sad (I presume documentary) footage of a wild fox caught in a cage not finding its place. Otherwise, besides the occasionally nice cinematography, the movie is marred with plot holes and just directionless characters whose motivations and behavior are a complete mystery unless one has already read the book on which the movie is based. A huge disappointment.
