Film Presentation:
72 de ani au trecut de cand crescatorul de reni Vukvukai traieste in inima regiunii Ciukotka. Este un om in varsta, intelept si plin de energie. E adevaratul om al tundrei, a carui viata nu poate fi separata de cea a renilor. Familia lui are grija de o turma imensa de peste 14.000 de reni. Viata lor este o lupta neincetata pentru supravietuire si bunastare in cele mai aspre conditii meteorologice din Ciaun-Ciukotka. Ei cred in puterea traditiei si asta ii ajuta sa reuseasca. Cultura straveche a nomazilor ciukci ii ocroteste, iar ei o pastreaza si o urmeaza. Deocamdata, taramul pe care il locuiesc este in siguranta. Acesta este Adevarul lui Vukvukai.
