Mebet, of the Nentsy people in North Western Siberia, is known to his fellow tribesmen as «God’s Favourite». Like the midnight sun, his luck never seems to sink below the horizon. But now Mebet has to set off on a shamanic journey into the beyond and endure the scourge of the Taiga for each year of life he begged from the Gods. The tale of Mebet’s destiny becomes a message of salvation for mankind.
