The main character of the movie (Hunter), who lost his wife 6 years ago, lives all alone away from civilization. He has cut off all his communications to the outer world. His only “companion” is its dog (Marta), but Hunter keeps even her at a distance. His life is nothing but a row of the days, one same as another: hunting, cooking and searching for radiowaves on an old broadcast receiver. All that the Hunter has is his memories, and yet they cannot bring back the lost meaning of his existence.
However, everything changes dramatically on one cold March morning, when the Hunter discovers that the dog has disapeared. He starts a chase after a thief and catches the criminal red-handed.
