Featuring majestic widescreen cinematography, Ága is the story of an elderly Inuit couple and their struggle for love, forgiveness and survival in the vast frozen tundra of Northern Siberia.
This multiple award-winning drama from Bulgarian writer-director Milko Lazarov introduces Nanook and Sedna, who live following the traditions of their ancestors. Alone in the wilderness, they might as well be the last people on Earth.
Nanook and Sedna’s traditional way of life starts changing – slowly, but inevitably. Hunting becomes more and more difficult, the animals around them die inexplicably and the ice has been melting earlier every year. Chena, who visits them regularly, is their only connection to the outside world – and to their daughter Ága, who left the icy tundra a long time ago due to a family feud. When Sedna’s health deteriorates, Nanook decides to fulfil her greatest wish. He embarks on a long journey in order to find Ága.
