200 to 300 thousand years ago the banks of the river now called Kama were inhabited by mammoth’s and elephant’s ancestors. Presently fishermen have found the fossils of these in the steep banks of Kama. All of it started from there… In the film, you can see how the discovery of the trogonterii mammoth’s fossils became the center of the social initiative for people from the nearest villages and even the Krai’s administrative capital.
