It’s a story about monastery workers of Vysotsky monastery in Serpukhov, Russia. They come here from all over Russia and the CIS for the sake of the icon the Inexhaustible chalice, which as they believe can cure alcoholism, narcomania, and other addictions. But most likely it's a story about the place similar to the prison and the army at the same time because of the routine, predictability, stability, and also senseless and merciless work. As longer they stay there, so harder them to socialize, what means the inevitable return. But monastery workers believe that such imprisonment and monotony is a salvation: “There are no joys, but also there are no sorrows”.
