A dedicated teacher and his wife, Atyrkul, combine home and school work in difficult conditions. 45 minutes walk to school at 30 degrees below zero, half a meter of snow height and the lack of a bridge over the river - all this is not reason for residents to skip school in an isolated mountain village Kyrgyzstan Chatkale. This short documentary describes not only the life challenges and everyday difficulties of students and the teachers they have to go through to get there to school, but also the beauty of commitment and serenity, and perhaps the naive happiness of children, due to the fact that they are able to find children's fun in a ruthless environment, as well as appeasement, ignoring everything that surrounds them.
