This wonderful re-imagining of the classic Russian fable of Baba Yaga pits a very clever protagonist against a villain who respects cleverness above all else. This is no simplistic battle of good vs. evil, but a story of aspiration, family, and finding your own unique way of turning trouble into opportunity.
