Two technicians from the Permafrost Research Institute in Lakoursk borrow these mythical icy roads on an extraordinary odyssey.

 

In the Great Russian North, above the arctic polar circle, roads are not made of concrete or asphalt but of snow and ice. Every winter, they form along frozen waterways and only become practicable when temperatures drop below -30°C.
At the end of march, Kostia and Ljoscha, two technicians from the Permafrost Research Institute in Lakoursk, begin a highly risky journey. Their goal is to deliver research equipment to the arctic station of Samoylov, lost somewhere in the vast, arid and glacial expanses of the polar sea. This perilous journey is a challenge even for the most seasoned traveller. Will their all-terrain military truck make it? Will they achieve their mission without too much damage?
