Chaika is a love story between a prostitute and a loser sailor, rebuilt between two seasons: the eternal winter of Siberia and the summer in the dusty steppes of Kazakhstan.
Young Tursyn comes back home to face what remains of his family: an old nomad about to die and a shipwrecked father. Both of them will bring back the vague memories that Tursyn has of his mother. Chaika is the adventure of joining those memories that life left scattered in the most hidden paramo, almost in the end of the world.
