Based on a multi-award winning novel by Guzel Yakhina inspired by her grandmothers dramatic life. The book became a bestseller translated into 34 languages.

Zuleikha, quiet and obedient Muslim wife, is living with her abusive husband and despotic mother-in-law in a remote Tatar village in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution. When her husband is murdered by soldiers for hiding grain, she is arrested and sent to Siberia. A dreadful trip to a place of exile, thousands of kilometers and a fierce winter kill many. In this severe wilderness, she begins to build a new life for herself and discovers an inner strength given by great love and endearment.

Zuleikha was brilliantly played by a famous Russian actress Chulpan Khamatova.
