A religious parable lies quietly with in this Russian homoerotic tale that sends messages promoting mercy and faith. Andrei wonders if his life is going anywhere. He is in a dead-end job at a design firm and his marital problems with wife Nina seem unresolvable. Andrei's sexuality is questioned after he publicly rescues a young man being beaten up by gay-bashers. Andrei meets Philip, a mysterious stranger, who comes to his office with an important project. Philip projects a supernatural/sexual energy that disconcerts Andrei. He is further confused after Philip announces that he is Andrei's patron saint during a one day trip. Philip explains that he is the reincarnation of an ancient savior. Terrified and confused, Andrei runs away from Philip. Later in his apartment, Philip kisses Andrei's arm, wounded from the scuffle with the gay bashers, and the arm is suddenly healed. Eventually Philip disappears as mysteriously as he came leaving Andrei to wander about pondering it all. He also leaves a gift for Andrei and Nina.
