A jawdropping documentary about a bizarre 21st Century subculture arising from the ongoing revolution in genetics. On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters are searching for the tusks of extinct mammoths.There is a gold rush fever in the air. The price for white gold has never been so high. The thawing permafrost not only releases precious ivory. The tusk hunters find a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Such finds are magnets for high-tech genetic scientists who want to bring the extinct woolly mammoth back to life à la Jurassic Park.

'The film approaches everything with a curious scepticism. It asks questions and doesn’t condemn. It tries to comprehend the new and the strange without being gullible. Utopia and dystopia, curiosity and skepticism — these are the main conflicts of our film. And its main drive.' Co-director, Christian Frei.
