The Postman’s White Nights

The Postman’s White Nights

Separated from the outside world with only a boat to connect their remote village to the mainland, the inhabitants of Kenozero Lake live the way their ancestors did: the community is small, everyone knows each other and they produce only those things which are necessary for survival. The village postman is their sole connection to the outside world, relying on his motorboat to bridge the two civilizations. But when his boat’s motor is stolen and the woman he loves escapes to the city, the postman follows, desperate for a new adventure and a new life.
