A boy in the Arctic named Chu singlehandedly defeats a polar bear. However, the village’s greedy shaman steals the bear when Chu brings it home. For revenge, Chu ruins the shaman’s show, revealing his fakery. The shaman casts Chu out to sea, where he is picked up by a Soviet ship. He then lives and studies in Leningrad, but always thinks about the North.
