Oleg and Katya both work in emergency care. They have stressful and trying jobs and little time for each other. Katya is tired of Oleg who spends his free time drinking alcohol and cares more about his patients than about his marriage. At the same time, Oleg has a new boss at work who puts up strict rules. Oleg does not care about the rules, he sees it more important to be able to do his job and save lives. He soon gets into trouble with the new boss. Captured between their patients, an efficiency-focused healthcare system and a marriage in dissolution, Oleg and Katya must try to get back on their feet. This Russian drama is well played and intense. The film is able to demonstrate how difficult it can be to keep the passion both within the marriage and in the professional life. We understand that the situation both at home and at work has been different but that the stress and pressure of everyday life easily can leave us with a sense of inadequacy regarding both each other and ourselves.
