A moving tale full of memorable images interspersed with moments of great beauty, charm and dry humour. Living in a yurt amid the frozen expanses of Siberia, an elderly Yakut couple, Sedna and Nanook seem to be the last people still living the traditional way.
Cutting holes in the ice to fish, trapping foxes, observing the flight of the ravens and the occasional ghostly reindeer, signs that climate change is making their difficult lives even more precarious. The biggest sorrow for these stoic survivors is that their daughter Aga has left to work in the diamond mine. This is definitely a film to see on the big screen to best appreciate the majestic cinematography of a dying way of life.
