Norwegian theater star Gørild Mauseth has set herself an almost impossible task: to play the role of Anna Karenina in Russia in Russian, which she does not speak. The actress goes on a journey to Tolstoy's homeland to learn the language and immerse herself in the world of the writer. Getting involved in this adventure, Gørild did not suspect that the role of Anna Karenina would become the main one in her fate and would change her life.

A documentary film about a male choir from the small fishing village of Berlevog. For some people, this is a film about politics, for other people it is about the cold north or about men and fish. But for everyone, this is a film about the indomitable will of ordinary people living in extreme conditions. And also about a trip to Murmansk, where the restless men set off in order to get to know Russia and amaze the audience with the performance of Russian and Norwegian songs.
