EN - Fedor is a young locksmith in Murmansk, a frozen city located in the obscurity of the Russian Arctic. Client after client, he roams through the alleys of concrete animated by a fantasy that isolates him from the city and its inhabitants. His dreams corrode his relation with reality and open the door to a phantasmagorical universe; a second sun is rising above the Russian Arctic.
