In the remote Russian wilderness, two brothers face new, conflicting emotions when their father, whom they only knew from a photograph, resurfaces.


In contemporary Russia, young brothers Vanya and Andrey have grown a deep attachment to each other to make up for their fatherless childhood. Running home after a fight with neighborhood kids, the boys are shocked to discover that their father has returned after a twelve year absence. With their mother's uneasy blessing, Vanya and Andrey set out on what they believe to be a fishing vacation with their taciturn father.

Though at first ecstatic to be reunited with the father they have only known from a faded photograph, the boys strain under the weight of their dad's awkward and increasingly brutal efforts to make up for a missing decade of parental supervision. Vanya and Andrey find themselves alternately tested, scolded, scrutinized and ignored by their father through a changing series of encounters and hardships.
