In 1959, after a group of nine student hikers are found dead in the Ural Mountains, KGB Major Oleg Kostin is sent to investigate. During the autopsy, Oleg has a flashback of a disturbing memory from WWII. Soon he discovers his first key lead.
Nine days before the group’s death, the hikers pass through a small village where they learn about the region’s Indigenous Mansi people, who have named the mountain they’re headed toward “The Dead Mountain.”
Oleg heads to Moscow to look further into the file of Alexander Zolotarev, the oldest member of the group, and makes a surprising discovery about his body. Later he has another flashback from the war and decides to set out for the pass on his own.
As the hikers prepare for ascension, an ominous wind engulfs them, followed by an astonishing sight in the sky. Perplexed, the group begins to remember the words of the Mansi locals before receiving one more warning.
