Sergueï is an Evenki who lives in the Siberian mountains; at the age of sixteen, he is put in charge of a herd of 3000 reindeer, which is constantly threatened by wolves. The boy learnt from a very young age to hunt and kill these predators, but when he comes across a she-wolf with her four cubs, his life and his certainties change dramatically. To protect them, Sergueï disobeys the centuries-old laws of his people, betraying his father and his clan in the process. In his youthful naivety, he decides to challenge what he has been taught; he attempts to befriend the cubs, sharing his secret with the beautiful Nastazia. Sergueï forgets, however, that wolves never lose their predator’s instinct.
