Cet article est disponible en anglais.
Leshka lives in an isolated village on the Bering Strait, which is located between Chukotka and Alaska and divides Russia from America. He is a teenager, and like most men in his village, he is a whale hunter who leads a very uneventful life out at the far edge of the world. But the recent arrival of the internet in Leshka's village means the predominantly male population now gathers in a shed every evening to watch gorgeous girls thousands of kilometres away dance on the screen of a constantly buffering erotic webcam chat site. For most of the guys, it's just a bit of fun, but Leshka takes it seriously. He encounters a beautiful girl on the chat site and falls in love with her. Leshka's first love transforms him beyond recognition: he is now determined to find the camgirl in the real world, where a crazy journey awaits him.
