Nature and man, space and time, life and death - in the far north of Russia, everything merges together. Somewhere beyond the Arctic Circle, a few dozen people continue to live surrounded by water, stone and sand. Disconnected from the infrastructure and forgotten by the state, these people are forced to deal with their own problems. Their villages are threatened by the fate of many Russian villages - slow, inevitable extinction. Each scene in the film questions the meaning of life and shows a person's life in a place where nature writes the laws.
