A movement takes us to icy fringes in the north and east of the world, on the territory of the Chukchi people. Through this journey without a narrator, clues blend with tracks, maps and drawings. The immemorial and the contemporary alternate as far as means of locomotion and landscapes are concerned. Breathing sounds and songs replace the sounds of the engine, of snow crunching, in a crow ceremony based on ancient popular traditions. An enigmatic development gives us a glimpse of this end of the earth. (GG)
