“A magical New Year story about a girl, Lenka Shabadinova, full of incredible events, unexpected meetings, spontaneous confrontations and fairy-tale solutions to emotional conflicts. It is an ironic and a philosophically conceptual eccentric comedy about ‘a girl in a city’. It recounts the adventures of a modest salesgirl trading in trifles in a mysterious country – modern Russia. In a mysterious city – modern Yekaterinburg. In a mysterious time – our time. In a mysterious season – the Urals’ New Year. Among incredible creatures – her fellow countrymen endowed with Siberian health. Surrounded by phantasmagoric trees – Christmas trees, both living outdoors and brought home…” (Vasilij Sigarev)
