The experiment of repopulating the Taimyr Peninsula with the musk ox, which began thirty years ago, has enriched Arctic biodiversity. Fifty oxen taken from Alaska and Canada have by now formed a population of several thousand heads, providing population material for other Arctic areas as well.
The film crew sets out to search for musk oxen in their new home at the northern tip of the Taimyr Peninsula in order to thoroughly get to know these bison-like animals. While following the trail of the musk ox along the northernmost latitudes of Eurasia, the crew also meets other inhabitants of these areas. The tough nature, constantly testing the limits of human endurance, is home for reindeer, wolves, polar foxes and several bird species.
