1934. Disquiet in the north of the USSR: the Hanty and Nenets shamans do
not want to accept new traditions. In order to reconcile two great cultures –
of the Russian avant-garde and of ancient paganism – some artists travel
to the taiga near the river Ob: a composer, a sculptor, a theatre director, a
constructivist architect, a fi lmmaker with primitivist inclinations and, as
head of the group, the well-known “Polina-Revolution”… The fi lm is based
on real events.
