American logger Sean Vann attempts to build a new logging operation in the frozen forests of Siberia. Vann has been logging in Russia for 17 years and landed a contract to log the world’s largest forest in Siberia. Vann looks to American loggers who are experiencing a recession and convinces a group of men from Montana and Oregon to leave the forests of America and seek their fortunes in the sub-zero ground of Siberia. where they must work side by side with a Russian crew.
Vitaliy Turuntsev is from Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. At 32 years old, he's worked in the world's largest forest all his life. He is a skilled mechanic and Sean describes him as his right-hand man. Vitaliy is a highly skilled operator on most of the machines too. He is a hard-living tough Russian logger who is uncompromising, plain speaking, and loves to hunt.
Vitaliy has major doubts as to whether any Americans are going to be tough enough to run the course in Siberia. "We work till -40 degrees...they're not going to survive, not by a long shot!" he says.
