The everyday job of “Minin” is to break ice in the estuary of the Angara River, the only river that flows out of Lake Baikal. It is necessary so that a ferry from the mainland could reach Port Baikal village. It is the only way to bring food, emergency services, local people and tourists to the village. Film “Minin” shows the village where time stopped 30 years ago. You will see the dwellers, Minin’s crew, their stories, thoughts on the village and navigation at Lake Baikal.
