A trilogy of short stories connected by the events of the departure of the Aral Sea.

The old fisherman, trying to escape from himself, drags out his existence with an eye on the memories of his past life with the hope that the sea will return. Phantoms of the past and the present arise in his mind, which torment the Old Man with the main question, is it possible to save the sea?
