Anastasia Lapsui is the first film-maker from the Far North of Russia to have filmed her people in her mother tongue - Nenets. Born in the Yamal tundra in 1943, she bears witness to the end of an era, filming a world in the process of mutation. With the same desire to pass on knowledge the film follows Anastasia Lapsui in her daily and professional life. Through a "making of" from her latest film-shoot, this is a portrait of a film-maker and her people, the Nenets of the tundra.
