Subject: This film is a reflection on people, mountains, towns and our real life at the turn of the centuries. Video materials for this story were filmed for 3 years during the winter ascents to the Tien-Shan (Kirghizia). The first expedition to the peak “Free Korea” headed by Mikhail Mikhailov took place in 1997. Christmas ascents to this peak became a tradition for Kirghiz mountaineers.
