As unrelenting as a wild dog attack, "Siberia, Monamour" is a powerful story of life and death on the fringes of Russian society. In a deserted Siberian village, an old man and his grandson wait. The boy's father left two years ago and has not returned. A pack of feral dogs also waits just outside the village, devouring everything alive. One of these dogs is the boy's best friend. The others keep the boy and his grandfather isolated in the wilderness, far from the nearest village. Through this dangerous yet beautiful landscape wander a host of soldiers, marauders, prostitutes and drunks. They are all searching for an escape.
