A newly qualified doctor takes a posting to a remote and very poor part of Turkmenistan. In addition to his day job as a pediatrician, he's researching the effects of religion on human health. His research has drawn the politically incorrect conclusion that faith does indeed improve health. When he attempts to write his thesis on the subject in the very intolerant USSR, various improbable and bizarre events begin to take place. The doctor thus believes that some otherworldly force is preventing him from publishing his findings.
