The Siberian permafrost is melting. Three Yakutians venture into the vast wilderness: villager Roman and city boy Kyym hunt for a rare reindeer while scientist Semyon scourges the permafrost for a viable cell of the mammoth, which he needs to clone the extinct animal. While Roman, Kyym and Semyon close in on their goals, both the frozen earth that they walk on and reality itself melt into another state.
