This movie, about two hours long, delves into a year of a trapper and his village on the Artic Circle in Siberia where winters of -50 below zero are
common. ('Don't know if F. or C.) Not just trappers, they are variously skilled in hewing canoes, building log structures, fishing, etc., but
surprisingly enough, little actual hunting. Every single day they must use their wits, and strength for survival. A broad-headed axe with a short
handle is the primary tool of these stoic people. The main character describes how he was set down in late summer of the 1970s with no knowledge of
the region, with few supplies and managed to survive the winter alone and eventually thrive to current times relying upon his own abilities and later
join with other trappers and member of the sixty person village.
