Ivanna is a young Nenets woman and mother of five, living in the Russian Arctic. Like her family for centuries before, she has led a traditional nomadic life in the tundra, driving a herd of reindeer. Most of them die, and she knows she will soon be left without a livelihood and be forced to make a dramatic decision. The film is about four years of a Nenets family from the harsh life in the tundra to modern everyday life in the Siberian city of Dudinka. It is both a liberating drama and a melancholy requiem for a lost way of life.

The film is available only on the territory of the Russian Federation.
