Set in a fictional post WW2 Russia an Amur Tiger lives alone in a forgotten prison camp in the far east. One eye was destroyed by the whip, the other branded and scarred with a sickle and hammer. Though blind, the Tiger learns how to see with the aid of his friend, Muzak the raven. The Tiger is unwittingly drawn into a larger conflict over the control of the Taiga (the great northern forest of Russia). The Tribe of the Wolf and the Clan of the Boar both vie for control and the Tiger becomes the tipping point and must choose the fate of the Taiga.
