Plot synopsis
The ancient city of Soligalich, an open-air city-museum, seems to have frozen in space and time. . In the workshop, which stands on the site of a former church, women make felt boots by hand. The heroines of the film, imbued with powerful energy and natural artistry, are bright, strong and vital. As guardians of this ancient craft, they are the spirit and the backbone of the country and worthy of the brush of the best artists.
