According to director Yevgeny Grigoriev, the plot of the film is based on real events telling about a 10-year-old village boy whose father is being killed. The child enlisted the support of a new physical education teacher who came to them and is trying to take revenge on the criminal who escaped justice.
The main roles in the film are played by Yura Borisov, Elizaveta Yankovskaya and Pavel Derevyanko, who will play the main villain in the film.

The film crew is currently working in the village of Kyn under extreme weather conditions. During the first filming week, due to abnormal frosts down to -35 degrees and strong winds, the team’s equipment, cameras, monitors froze. In addition, the shooting of the film takes place in hard-to-reach places, which can only be reached by snowmobiles.
– This story is really based on real events from my life. But I take on it, because a person anywhere in the world can find himself in a dead end in life, faced with injustice, resentment and something that can break his life. If we talk about the genre, then I want to do something at the junction of thriller, black comedy and drama, – said the director of the film Yevgeny Grigoriev.
