On islands of the far north and under eternally frozen conditions, trophy hunters are occupied with the search for priceless treasures of the “black market”—prehistoric mammoth tusks. One such exhibition finds the wonderfully preserved remains of an ancient beast. Fragments of the animal with living cells are sent to a cloning laboratory in South Korea. Its ambitious head, Woo Suk Hwang, undertakes bringing mammoths back to life.
