The 25-year-old provincial guy Kolya comes to Moscow to stay with his
uncle. He needs to repay a debt as quickly possible, which hangs over him
from his last workplace; he is ready to work every day. More precisely, every
night: because his uncle arranges for him to work as night watchman on…
a cemetery. The new watchman starts his fi rst shift, but what happens on
the cemetery when it gets dark comes utterly unexpected. And there are
many nights ahead. Kolya must make a choice: arrange himself with the
mysterious visitors or run away.
