Footage of different people in different places and different periods, some speeded up, some repeated, some reversed, etc. – businessman, news vendor, Russian soldiers – waving their arms and stamping their feet to keep warm. Snowball fights, children sliding, soldiers sliding, and so on. People skating and sliding on frozen lakes. Skiers, toboganner, figure-skaters, ski-jumpers, ice-dancers. People being blown along icy pavements, caught in snow-flurries, hurrying across snow-rutted streets, falling on the ice, struggling in blizzard conditions. Credits.
