On far northern islands, in conditions of permafrost, the trophy hunters are busy with the search for valuable mammoth tusks. One expedition discovers perfectly preserved remains. The find draws attention from biotechnologists. Fragments of the animal are delivered to a South-Korean laboratory. Its head Hwang Woo-suk restores mammoths to life and creates a revolution in science.
