Zuleikha, a quiet and obedient Muslim wife, lives with her abusive husband and despotic mother-in-law in a remote Tatar village in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution. When her husband is murdered by communist soldiers for hiding grain, she is arrested and sent to Siberia. She takes a dreadful journey thousands of kilometers away to a place of exile, where fierce winters kill many. In this severe wilderness, she builds a new life for herself and discovers an inner strength given by great love and endearment.
