Summary Every spring the frozen river near Kumak's house cracks and breaks into a million pieces. But this year, something different happens. The ice jams in a bend in the river and the water rises over its banks and into the village. As the waters sweep through his village, Kumak and his family take refuge on the roof of his house. In an effort to recover as many of their belonging as possible, Kumak and the village practice the value of community and working together.
