Plot synopsis
The film′s hero, Ilyich, cannot understand what′s wrong with him. Ilyich is a former «mole», an external observation agent in the KGB, then FSB. A skilled instructor. Now he is retired. From loneliness, he continues to watch those who catch his attention and curiosity. The doctor diagnoses him with empty sella syndrome (the syndrome of an empty Turkish Seat), which poses no danger for society… Sella turcica is the Latin name for the part of the brain where the pituitary gland (hypophysis) is located; in English, it is called the Turkish Seat. Migraines, dizziness, speech disorders, memory problems, asthenia — all these are signs for a disturbance in this area, called in medicine «Syndrome of the Turkish Seat».
