Description:
life in the harsh Arctic wilderness, about forgotten legends, the generational divide and eternal love.

In a yurt on the snow, Nanook and Sedna live following the traditions of their ancestors. Alone in the wilderness, they look like the last people on Earth. Their traditional way of life starts changing - slowly, but inevitably. The game is disappearing, the animals around them die for inexplicable reasons, and the ice has been melting earlier every year. Their routine is broken only by the sporadic visits by Chena, a young man who lives in the closest settlement. When Sedna dies, Nanook decides to fulfil her last wish and find Ága - their daughter who ran away long ago, abandoning their traditions and choosing to live in the city.

"For a long time, I've been fascinated by how the modern and quickly developing world influences small communities /…/. My intention with this movie is to look steadily at how the offensive civilization put to proof the conservation of Northern communities. I am interested in how these same people, who live in unbearable conditions for the modern man, have succeeded to preserve the delicacy in their interpersonal relations, and to perceive life with smile and sympathy." (Milko Lazarov)
