THE BONFIRE

Winters are long and hard in the Republic of Sacha in Eastern Siberia, and sometimes events make peoples' hearts freeze, too. Widower Ignat keeps his heart warm with hard work, but when his son accidentally kills Ignat's brother's son, Ignat loses his whole family in one cataclysmic moment. Ignat meets ten-year-old Mogotoy, whose name means "chipmunk", and takes him under his wing. But Mikhail still wants revenge for the death of his son.
