Several Russian Pomorsk men who live by the White Sea have brought in their boats for the evening and are relaxing inside a fisherman's hut. One of them says "there has been so much untruth told about our region that it is time to set the record straight" and proceeds to tell a variety of outrageous tall tales (based on traditional folklore of the Russian north). As the evening gets later, the tales turn more serious.

The first six stories, without the introductory and connecting sequences, were previously released in three separate films (in 1977, 1979 and 1986). The last story, "Ivan and Adrian", was also released as a separate short film in 1987 under the name "Pomorskaya Byl". "Eternal Icebergs" and "Frozen Songs" were also released separately at this time, even though they had been part of previous films. See more
