They do not want the treasures for themselves, the four geologists who travel into the depths of the tundra to look for diamonds. No, they talk about how many space flights could be financed with it, and that they would not have "lived in vain". This unselfish mental attitude adds to the conflict within her small expedition group - a melancholic love story, in which Sergei falls in love with Tanja, who is going to marry Andrey - something profoundly existential, which director Kalatozov underlines with abrupt rhythm changes. Nature has the last word.
