Viktor Valerevich Mumikhotkak also known as „Mukha“, Yupik Eskimo from the hamlet New Chaplino (Chukotka, Russia), died tragically in 2012. Somebody stabbed him in his abdomen and cut off his fingers. In 2014, when young Alla Ukuma gave birth to her first son, her mother told her: „Last night I saw Mukha in my dream. He had come back in your boy. Let us name your baby Viktor.“ According to the local people, the dead can return to the realm of the living up to five times. This film essay on life, death and possible return poses the universal question: how do you confront your own end?
