A young idealistic Danish anthropologist arrives in the beautiful and harsh wilderness of Siberia to study the Yukaghir, a tribe of indigenous hunters. Appalled at how the Yukaghir live under an oppressive criminal regime that has monopolized the fur trade in the region, the anthropologist’s attempt to liberate the Yukaghir ends in tragedy and together with the spiritual leader Spiridon, he is forced to flee into the cold wilderness where he must fight for survival. Near death of starvation he must lose his sanity and learn how to become a soul hunter in order to survive.
