“Where is the human soul? Is it in the heart? In the brain? Or maybe elsewhere?”, wonders an old doctor who has spent his life working at a psychiatric hospital in the Siberian countryside. Previously inaccessible, this place is shown through the film crew by its residents, some of whom have spent several decades at the hospital.
