Plot synopsis
The 1950s. A city of geologists stands on the edge of the Arctic Ocean, in the center of the Territory. After the war, the country needed gold, but the Territory still only provided tin. An order arrives from the city to close the Geological Survey. But the legendary Buddha, the master of the Territory Ilya Tchinkov, is convinced that, there, gold exists. He is responsible for finding it during a prospecting campaign. To win this bet, he needs people who will believe in the Territory as he does.
