Siberian villager Roman and city boy Kymm venture into the vast Yakutian wilderness hunting for a rare reindeer, while cloning-scientist Semyon searches for mammoth remains. Their quests drive them far North and eventually down into the melting permafrost, where science fiction seems to become reality and reality seems to become myth.
In the melting Siberian permafrost, three Yakutians venture into the wilderness on different quests. Villager Roman and city boy Kymm hunt for a rare reindeer while, not so far away, scientist Semyon searches an enormous crater for a viable mammoth. In the midst of an ongoing mass-extinction, of a Siberian Ivory Rush and at the dawn of de-extinction, a contemporary myth unfolds. While the three men close in on their goals, both the frozen earth that they walk on and reality itself melt into another state.
