environment / isolation

Intolerable climate of the Arctic part of Yakutia. Permafrost. Most of the year the temperature is always negative, reaching minus 65C below zero, in winter. There is no telephone or electricity. The lack of roads complicates travelling around. Living in such conditions is associated with daily struggles with the environment and yourself. Our hero is a horse-breeder, most of the year he lives in the mountains looking after the horses. Feeling like an outsider in his own house, Sergei almost lost touch with his family and he doesn’t see his children grow up.
