This is the story of Martin, a once successful mathematician who suffers a mental breakdown. Following his release from a mental hospital Martin ends up living on the streets, where he meets Viktor, a 10-year-old Russian boy. They attempt to create a new life together by building a small cabin in the woods. Their daily struggle for survival creates a strong bond between them until the hut is suddenly destroyed. Martin is readmitted to hospital and told that the boy was simply a figment of his imagination, a result of his mental illness.  However, Martin refuses to believe that the friendship was an illusion and sets out on a to discover the truth.
