Summary In 1933 Stalin organizes a great "cleansing" of Moscow and Leningrad of all the citizens deemed a social nuisance. This film recounts the untold story of these 6000 "unwanted", sent to a lost island in the middle of Siberia. Deported with no food, clothes or tools, these poor men, women and children suffered the torture of hunger until they had no choice but to devour each other. An unbelievable and terrible story that plays like a thriller and with a tension that lasts until the end
