Visual study of the life of the Chukchi and Eskimos living on the coast of the Arctic Ocean. Life of people is centered around hunting for walruses and whales and protecting villages from bears coming from the tundra. This turns the film into a reflection about the death. The film uses the structure of a shamanic ritual — a meaningful event for nothern people.
