Plot synopsis
Among the Russian Solovki Islands, off the White Sea, Rebolda was only inhabited for a few months by seasonal workers who harvest seaweed for a pittance. Here people live in autarky without electricity or means of communication. So they contact their families by cell phone when the network allows, they smoke and sometimes talk to each other. This intimate and contemplative film is a gem thanks to the director's very sensitive look at these workers who live in the middle of nowhere.
