Shoyna is a village in the north of Russia. In 1935 a huge factory for preserved fish was built. Yet in 1941 it was destroyed by a storm. Ten years later the Barents Sea was completely overfished by the fishing fleets of Shoina, Arkhangelsk and Murmansk. Concerning Shoina additionally the vegetation cover of the seabed was destroyed by the trawls. Since that the waves have been loosening ten thousands of tons of sand from the seabed, which they washed to the land where the wind carries the grains of sand over the tundra and over the houses and streets of Shoina. All that’s left of the former model village are the industrial scrap and some houses, which are sinking into the sand. Ever since the remaining 300 inhabitants are on the drip of the outside world.
