A film about memory and love. Fisherman Sergei escapes from his humdrum existence on the empty shores of Lake Onega – where he meets with the ghost of his beloved wife.
"Fateich and the Sea"
The events of the film take place in the Russian Far East, on the uninhabited island of Rikord in Peter the Great Gulf. Together with his family, the protagonist Fateich looks after his own underwater farm and harvests seafood delicacies. With its stunning views of the landscapes of the Primorsky Territory – both under and above the water – Fateich and the Sea tells the story of the life of a small man who has an unbreakable bond with the world around him.
