In the middle of the Siberian taiga, 450 miles from the nearest village, live two families that refuse to talk to each other. Images of rare beauty comprise this unconventional western. Between the fear of the other, of wild beasts, and the joy provided by the immensity of the forest, a cruel tale unfolds, arguing that the root of evil is akin to the fear of closeness and intimacy.
