We discuss a theory of fermions which are trapped inside the four-manifold with a boundary, imposing the local bag boundary conditions, which ensure a vanishing current through the boundary. Such a setup naturally fits the situation of a practical interest: quasi particles of the spin 1/2 in the solid state physics, which are confined inside a sample of a finite size. We demonstrate that the parity-odd part of the effective quantum action is nontrivial and it is given by the topological Chern-Simons term, which lives on the boundary.
