At the age of four Lek walked out of his apartment and lived for two years on the streets of Moscow where he was adopted by a pack of wild dogs. When he returns to human society, Lek finds his values are at odds with the world, leading to conflict and confusion. With the aid of cassette tapes recorded while he was a child, the now forty-year-old Lek looks back on his time among the dogs, an experience that had a dramatic impact on his emotional life, a failed love affair, and his capacity to cope with the human world.
