During his routine rounds of the lakes, senior fisheries inspector Trofim Rusanov runs afoul of the local fishermen, who sink his boat. Trofim finds himself lost in the taiga forest, alone in the wilds, dozens of kilometers from human habitation. Making his way back to civilization, he suddenly finds a strange bundle in a cabin in the woods: An abandoned baby. For days, he wanders the uninhabited taiga, fighting both for his life and the life of the little child. Finally, Trofim finds the way home. He wants to find the woman who left her baby in the forest. It takes a superhuman effort for him to find the baby's mother. But his long quest leads to another surprising find.
