Plot synopsis
In the summer of 2021, a heat wave and exceptional drought caused giant fires that ravaged 19 million hectares in northeastern Siberia. In this region, in the heart of the taiga, the village of Shologon is shrouded in a thick cloud of smoke. The black ashes carried by the wind spread alarming news: the forest is on fire and the flames are approaching. Abandoned by the State, the inhabitants mobilize to confront the Dragon.
