Trees are everything. In a settlement near the border between Russia and Finland, a family keeps traditional shamanic rituals alive. Children play in the same forest where photos nailed to tree trunks recall Stalin's bloody repressions. Politics and spirituality meet in this film of intuitive construction and poetic impressions: historical archive, nature shots, family scenes and inquisitive testimonies that through imagination create a historical memory.

Work made with the 2017 BBVA Foundation grant for Creation in Video Art.
