A small settlement of sea hunters on the eastern coast of Chukotka, Enurmino. The main fisheries are hunting for marine animals - gray whales, Pacific walruses, seals, fishing. Dependence on wildlife, seasonal migration of animals, does not allow local residents to relax. To a certain extent, the pandemic also did not have a serious impact on local traditions - the deep isolation of a small Chukchi village, isolation from civilization - has its advantages compared to the so-called "civilized world". Twenty people are professional hunters - whose duties include daily work at sea. The meat of marine animals is distributed free of charge - this is the basic rule of this world.
