In the middle of the Siberian taiga, 450 miles from the nearest village live two families: the Braguine and the Kiline. Not a single road leads here. A long trip on the Yenissei River, first by boat, then by helicopter, is the only way to reach Braguino.
Self-sufficient, both families live there according to their own rules and principles. In the middle of the village: a barrier. Both families refuse to speak to each other. In the middle of the river sits an island where another community is being built: that of the children. Free, unpredictable, wild. Between the fear of the other, of wild beasts, and the joy provided by the immensity of the forest, a cruel tale unfolds, a tale in which tensions and fear give shape to the geography of an ancestral conflict.
