Everything changes in the life of the 15-year-old hunter Leshka with the appearance of an unusual girl “from the computer”, who fascinates him. The protagonist’s state of being in love with an image so far away, the blurred silhouette of a beautiful stranger, leads him to the most courageous act in his life: to embark on the dangerous journey through the raging waters of the Bering Strait towards an unfamiliar world in order to find his love.
