In one of the secret laboratories, scientists who have received virtually unlimited funding are engaged in the study of the mysterious human amphibian. He was not lucky enough to be born with a serious natural anomaly and he himself is considered the last representative of the species once strong, destroyed as a result of human cruelty. The army and scientists are trying to figure out how their skills can be used to gain an advantage during the Cold War. At the same time, a deaf woman who was doing clean was shown in the lab. He accidentally discovers the amphibian and begins to feel compassion for him. This woman wants to help him escape, realizing it's almost impossible to do that.
