Cut off from the outside world with only a boat to connect the remote village to the mainland, the inhabitants of Lake Kenozero live the same way as their ancestors did centuries ago: the community is small, everyone knows each other and they produce only what is necessary for survival. The Postman of the village (Aleksey Tryapitsyn) is the only link to the outside world, relying on his speedboat to bridge the gap between the two civilisations.
