A young hunter sets off on a journey in search of a girl he saw on his computer.

Leshka, a 15-year-old boy, lives in an isolated place on the Bering Strait. Like most of the men in his village, he is a whale hunter. When Internet reaches his village, everything changes in his life. The appearance of a girl on a webcam site fascinates him. His mood changes as he sees this beautiful girl again and again and he decides to perform the bravest act of his life: to embark on a dangerous journey using nothing but a tiny fishing boat, crossing the raging waters of the Bering Strait to an unknown world to find his love.
