Some animals plod on uphill, overcoming difficulties, to get to the peak. And others don’t storm any heights knowing that any moment there will be a turnabout, and they will have a new peak to climb. Those in the middle know neither ups, nor downs, but they are always about. A funny and instructive story about our life.

Film was shot with the financial support of the Committee for Cinematography of Russian Federation.
