(OMINOUS MUSIC)

Thirty years I waited

to see this place.

It look like what you thought?

It's not what it

looks like that matters.

It's what it feels like.

The Altai's one of the most

spiritual places on Earth.

Healing, magic, energy.

They tap into shit here

that the rest of the world

can't even comprehend yet.

Maybe that's what

you want to believe

so that you didn't waste

the last thirty years

of your life studying it.

Cynicism.

It's easy but it doesn't

leave much room for happiness.

(CHUCKLING)

I'll keep that

in mind professor.

Personally, I'd rather

be in the Bahamas.

Well, maybe next

time you could've asked

one of your friends

from the Bahamas

to get stabbed

four times instead.

Jesus, how'd I get

stuck in a car with you?

Any idea what we should

say to Kara's parents?

"I'm sorry?

"My condolences?"

Don't say anything.

It's been a year.

Yeah, they've probably

already gotten over it, huh?

I just mean maybe they

don't want to be reminded

their daughter's dead the

moment we step out of the car.

And you think they won't be,

surrounded by all

of her friends?

Maybe it'll be a little

awkward when they see you, huh?

Mike, let it go.

You coulda all been one

big happy family, Alice.

Is this you letting it go, Mike?

You think I'm the

only one thinking that?

No, but you're the only

one who's a big enough ass

to bring it up.

(CARS RUMBLING)

There's bodies

in these mountains.

(EERIE MUSIC)

Human bodies?

In 1993, archeologists

found a female mummy

encased in ice.

Twenty-five hundred years old.

The Altai did not

want her moved.

Said she was there

to bar the entrance

of the kingdom of the dead.

Let me guess.

They moved her?

And as soon as they did,

an earthquake shook

the whole area.

Floods, disease.

Christ, even the suicide

rate went up around here.

Sounds like a good time.

Let's just say

this isn't a place

where the dead like

to be disturbed.

(CHICKENS CLUCKING)

(SPEAKING RUSSIAN)

(WOOD CREAKING)

It'll be fine.

But if you need anything.

Thanks.

Hey.

Hey.

It's okay.

Don't be scared.

(CAMERA PHONE SNAPPING)

(SPEAKING RUSSIAN)

If even the locals

gotta ask directions,

we're really going to

the middle of nowhere.

(LAUGHING)

This is Siberia.

Everywhere's in the

middle of nowhere.

Oh my God.

(SOMBER MUSIC)

(WIND RUSHING)

(CAR HONKING)

Welcome to my home!

It's very good to uh...

English, I understand

but uh, speak not so...

This is Piotr.

I'm Sergei, the

one who wrote you.

Welcome.

Mike.

Ah, Mike.

Helen.

(SPEAKING RUSSIAN)

Tony.

Ah, my man.

Hi.

Alice.

Come! Come!

Please, hot tea inside.

Welcome, my friend, welcome.

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

You want to show

everybody you're a tool?

(CAMERA PHONE SNAPPING)

He's like the Siberian Tarzan.

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

It's a Tree of Spirits.

In our culture, we

believe that the distance

between the living and

the dead is not that far.

And some spirits

choose to remain here.

So people hang ribbons.

As a sign of respect.

And to make a wish.

What do you really want in life?

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

I gotta show you something.

(UNSETTLING MUSIC)

(SOMBER MUSIC)

I miss Kara too but...

This is just creepy.

(OMINOUS MUSIC)

Alice,

it's Brandon.

(UNSETTLING MUSIC)

And you'd think they

wouldn't want to see him here.

Hate to say this but

you'd think they wouldn't

wanna see you either.

What is this?

This must be why we're here.

Coo bro,

my computer doesn't

turn on, man.

Is the battery charged?

Here, let me take a look.

Oh, wait.

I know what it is.

(LAUGHING)

Are you outta your mind, Tony?
