Through the long hours with only himself to talk to, Martin must try to assemble the truth of his fate, piece by terrible piece.

How beautiful and mighty Lake Baikal is! It is unequaled on earth. Because of its majesty and beauty people began since ancient times to call it Sea Baikal, and personified it, calling it in respect Batiushka (Father). Rich was the Sea thousands of years ago. The fish could be caught with bare hands. Flocks of birds obscured the sky and a myriad of different animals lived in the woods. Big and small they were. There was enough food for everyone.

This is why people come to Sea Baikal, some for its multiple wonders, some to recover from health problems, some for the reinvigorating air and some simply for pleasure...
