There was a planetary catastrophe that has led to general temperature drop on the planet, which caused the death of almost all vegetation because of constant low temperature, and as a result, the emigration and death of herbivores. And because of a shortage of food, most carnivores began to come out of their range and starve, and as a result they began to attack people.
The protagonist is a researcher behind the Arctic Circle and works at a scientific station that recorded and investigated climatic deviations beyond the Arctic Circle. During the research, the earth began to cool sharply, and strong storms began to form on the planet. Since the station was beyond the Arctic Circle, it fell into the region of strong snow storms, and because of that satellite and radio communications failed at the station. In case of emergencies, cryocamera were installed on the station, so that personnel could survive the lack of food and water supplies and wait for help. After some time, when all the staff were plunged into anabiosis, for an unknown reason, cryocameras began to fail at the station, so awakened people were doomed to a hungry and cold death. The protagonist is one of the "lucky ones" who is destined to wake up early and look for a way to survive and find help.
