Boris, a Yakut/Russian around 20, wants to go to the „continent“ – as they call the rest of Russia in Siberia – and leave his hometown behind: Mirny, a former Soviet mono-city built on permafrost and diamond mine on the border of the biggest excavated hole in the world. Forced to save someone dear in the taiga, he has to confront himself with the old shaman and hunting traditions he has lost sight of and might change his mind.
