Plot synopsis
All Russians are familiar with Leskov’s Levsha. Does Levsha still exist in modern Russia? The film is a cheerful story about folksy craftsmen from a Russian province: singers, carvers, antique collectors. This is a naïve and very touching yet fading Russian folk world – the merry outskirts of modern Russia.
