For the Evens, summer is a time of transmission. The time when children join their parents in the forest, when the animals roam through once again lush environment. Daria and her granddaughter Vassilina, whom we met in winter, are our guides on this journey of discovery through these mysterious lands.

Nastassja and her baby daughter are back to visit Daria and her family for the summer…
It’s the promise of a return to these vast lands, to reconnect with “another kind of world”, a new nomadic experience..
Summer. A glorious period of lush vegetation and living outdoors. It’s a joyful revival of life…for animals, humans, and all living beings that are important to those who’ve stayed in the frozen environment all winter. A massive exodus takes place in Kamchatka from the cities to the forest. This film tells the story of this “return” and of this “different world” that is taking shape in the heart of the summer forest of Kamchatka.
