Beyond the Arctic Circle in a valley of the Verkhoyansk Mountains, autumn is in full display.  Here far away from civilization, two people have been living for 30 years. He is Even, she is Russian.

They met in a park in Tula 30 year earlier, 6000 miles from this house.  They have almost everything - a house, a lake, dogs, reindeer, horses and happiness. but they have never heard each other's voice. Though both are deaf, their life is joyous and the land and lake bountiful. By Alexey Golovkov, 2023, 52.'
