Inspector Glebsky (Uldis Pucitis) arrives at the hotel "Dead Mountaineer's" because of an anonymous call. This hotel is located in a remote area in a valley, hidden among the mountains in some European country. The very name of the hotel - "Dead Mountaineer's" can be explained quite simply: one climber died here who fell off a cliff. He left only his faithful dog behind - a St. Bernard called Lel. In the hotel there is a rather bleak portrait of the climber near which faithful Lel likes to sleep. Almost all of the lodgers are rather strange, especially Mr. (Karlis Sebris) and Mrs. (Irena Kriauzaite) Moses and Olaf Andvarafors (Tiit Härm).
Later another strange individual materializes; Luarvik (Sulev Luik), who can not even utter a couple of words. Mr. Moses and Luarvik turn out to be aliens and Mrs. Moses and Olaf are their robots, although they look like ordinary people. And in the mountains they suffer a calamity. After a heavy snowfall, when the hotel is cut off from the outside world, a body appears at one point. Inspector Glebsky initiates an investigation, using all of his standard skills. However the investigation of the pseudo-murder of Olaf comes to a standstill. And when seemingly all intricacies of the plot unravel and the aliens can safely leave the Earth a military helicopter appears. The inspector has a chance to do great service to the aliens, but Glebsky behaves like a typical cop, subordinate only to common sense and official instructions which leads to the tragic outcome. At the end of the film the inspector is plagued by doubts whether he did everything he could.
