The Bus "33"

A young man named Peter wakes up and reveals himself in the middle of a snow-covered wasteland. There is only one point of interest which is a lonesome bus stop. Talking to the locals, whose weird behaviour alarms Peter from the very beginning he finds out that this place is called Deadend and that the only way to get out of here to Vocation is to take Bus «33». The more Peter gets to know about lifestyle and conceptions of Deadend’s inhabitants the more he loses his enthusiasm to achieve his purpose. But the sudden appearance of a young man named Andrey who also goes to Vocation changes the whole situation and helps Peter to regain his belief.
