Astrophysicist Dmitri Malianov sends his wife and son off to her mother's house in Odessa so that he can work, free from distractions, on the project he's sure will win him the Nobel Prize. He'd have an easier time making progress if he wasn't being interrupted all the time, by deliveries, by women in short skirts, and finally, by several of his friends, also scientists, who drop by, saying they all felt they were on the verge of a major discovery when they got ... distracted. Is there an ominous force that doesn't want knowledge to progress, or could it be something more natural?
