A portrait of a season - a journey through North Russia and Siberia, through the feelings and thoughts of the people who have to cope with one of the world's harshest climates; a reality where the boundary between life and death is so thin that is sometimes almost nonexistent, where civilization constantly both fights and embraces nature and its timeless rules and rites.
In these remote places, people, animals and nature itself become elements of a millennial yet unpredictable script, in which physical and mental endurance play an important role as much as chance does, where life and death constantly embrace each other. A reflection on fate, adaptation and the immutable cycles of existence. Short film successfully travelled more than 250 film festivals all around the world.
