A feature documentary film by Martin Ryšavý. The film draws a portrait of the difficult life of the Siberian Evens. While Afanasy (Afonka) Konstantinov would often like to end the difficult nomadic life and settle down, his great-aunt Maria Yegorovna Kolesova wants her relatives to maintain the traditional lifestyle of their ancestors. Trapped between vague ideas about a new life and his love of the mountains and herding, Afonka feels that he will never be exactly like his ancestors.
