At the end of August the big nenets family Yaptik begins to wander across Yamal. They fold up their camp in the tundra, herd the reindeer and move towards the «upper world».

On road we also meet the shaman Iri Tadibe (he is 90, but he says he is 35); the children Yarkalyna and Yako, learning how to throw a lasso; the 100-year-old Khadu who does not sit on the nart whether it is freezing cold or whether it rains — because she pities the reindeer. The deity of family, Yaptik-Hesse, wanders in the sacred narty. Nobody will ever see his face.
