The main character of the documentary is the artist who lives in St. Petersburg, Jurij Salnikov – who learned his family secret: he BELIEVED that he was born in Vladivostok, but once his birthplace and identity changed: he was born beyond the Arctic Circle in Norway. 1,400 Soviet women were transported to occupied Norway to work in the fishing industry in the arctic region. World War II saw 140 children born to Soviet parents imprisoned in Nazi work camps in Norway.

We hope this ongoing work will contribute to clear some fog and the darkness surrounding the situation of the Soviet prisoners and the Ostarbeiter in Norway; the destinies of the women and men who laboured in the fish processing plants in Bodø, Hammerfest, and Svolvær, as well as the fifty-two children who were born in the prison camp at Langstranda in the years of 1944-45.
