The second of nine films about life in the Soviet Union Hunter and Son Mikhail Kuzakov and his son
Yuri live and work in the Taiga forest hunting the Siberian sable at temperatures down to minus 40°C. The sable pelt, worth E200 to them, will one day become part of a coat worth E80,000 in the west. The film follows the lives of the hunters in the forest and of their families living in the tiny settlement of Preobrazhenka, where they await the return of their menfolk. It's a way of life that has remained almost unchanged by revolution or by time.
