Krasnovishersky district of Perm Region.Taiga foothills of the Northern Urals. People's life here is determined by forest, which had always fed and given shelter to indigenous Finno-Ugric population. Closely-knit family of Old Believer priests Krechetov tries to resist to widespread destruction of traditional life. Haying time is not the best time to talk with the villagers – all are in the fields from youngsters to orders. ..Except our interlocutors... What are their memories of the remote past? How they respond to their current life? How they live now? What they believe in and what expect?
