The story of an old janitor, whose only belongings are a goat and a broom. Every day he fulfills his simple chores. Who would have thought that this coarse and insignificant man had feelings, and that his soul was yearning for beauty, and pining for some other, better life. But where that kind of life might be found in our imperfect world, except on the Moon maybe? And one day his dream will come true, in a most unexpected way…

Film was shot with the financial support of the Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography of Russian Federation.
