In the north of Russia, far beyond the Arctic Circle, on the shores of the White Sea, on the Kanin Peninsula, there is an amazing settlement. The houses in it, almost to the very roofs, are covered with sand, and the streets are somewhere deep under the sand dunes. From afar, this village can be mistaken for an abandoned one. But people live there. Which spend all their time, all their strength on the battle with the desert advancing on them from the White Sea. The film tells the story of the dramatic transformation of the prosperous fishing village of Shoyna into a dying village, almost completely buried in the sands.
