To name you, liberty
This film is unavailable online. It would have been screened physically if the competent authorities had allowed it in agreement with the health situation.

15-year-old Leshka falls madly in love with an American camgirl via the screen he shares with other whalers living in a tiny Bering Strait village. An unhappy set of circumstances will push him to join her.

This inspired first film evokes universal teenage emotions but distinguishes itself by the place where the action happens, a place that straddles two continents and is linked via a bad Internet connection.
