A documentary film about the indigenous small-numbered people of the Far East-the Ainu. From time immemorial, the Ainu inhabited the Japanese Islands, Sakhalin Island, the Kuril Islands and the south of the Kamchatka Peninsula. The fate of the Ainu people is a difficult fate: according to historical documents, the Ainu were the most numerous ethnic group in the Far East, their number only in the south of Kamchatka reached several thousand people. But in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, some of the Ainu were assimilated by the Japanese, and some mixed with the Russian population of the Far East. At the moment, the Ainu living in Russia are not included in the list of indigenous small-numbered peoples of the North, Siberia and the Far East and are fighting for the inclusion of the Ainu people in the state document of the Russian Federation.
