Synopsis

In the forests and mountains of north-eastern China live the Evenks, a nomadic people that migrated 300 years ago from Siberia and is now one of the 56 officially recognized ethnic groups in China. They live themselves by hunting and breeding reindeer. In 2003, the Evenks were forced to move from the forests to a new settlement built by the government. Weijia is one of them. For much of his life he was a hunter. His land has now gone, his hunting rifles have been impounded and his way of life is dying out. Now he can no longer hunt, Weijia spends his days drinking and musing on his past.
