Set in 1892 Russia, Long Way North is an enchanting and beautifully-told animation film about a voyage of self-discovery.

Beginning in St. Petersburg, the film follows Sacha, a young girl from nobility who dreams of leaving her aristocrat life behind and joining her grandfather Olukine, a renowned captain and explorer, on one of his seafaring adventures. Her family background does not allow for such impulses, but when Olukine goes missing after he tries to conquer the North Pole, Sacha makes it her mission to find him and his ship, the indestructible Davaï.
