Lillian is a Russian porn actress in New York who unexpectedly leaves the set of a film shoot one day in order to walk back to her home country. Starting in March she crosses the North American continent and eventually reaches Beringia, the remote area between Alaska and Siberia, by late fall. Lillian disappears in the inhospitable arctic wilderness and the film ends on the Siberian side of the Bering Strait, depicting the primordial fight for survival of indigenous Chukotkan whale hunters. Apart from Lillian´s personal story, throughout the film the camera is equally interested in the regions Lillian passes and their often peculiar inhabitants.
