We float through much of life on auto-pilot. Years can go by unexamined in this manner, and it often takes something drastic to be shocked out of this malaise. Films are frequently about these kind of moments because they are catalysts for change, and change is a prerequisite to narrative plotting. Sometimes they are realistic: a breakup, an unexpected death, or a cancer diagnosis. Other times they are fantastic, like Neo glimpsing the Matrix, or Harry Potter being invited to Hogwarts. Misha is jogging in the area surrounding his country home one morning when he witnesses something strange—a young woman emerging from the woods, completely naked, and crying for help. He is shocked, transfixed, but ultimately frozen. Before he can bring himself to action, a car pulls up and the woman is driven away. It is a brief moment, but an indelible one—the kind of rupture in the fabric of everyday reality that spurs contemplation.

When he finally joins for dinner, the topic turns uncomfortably to the incident, where several interpretations of the events are introduced.
