The heroine’s task is to find Baba Yaga (Elena Vorobey), who has her parents in the Far Kingdom.

“Baba Yaga is a prototype of the Mordovian forest goddess Viryava,” explained the project’s producer, Alla Kargina. — We are filming scenes in the Staraya Terizmorga village of Staroshaigov, in the Podlesnaya Tavla village of Kochkurovsky and in Saransk. We constantly prayed to Viryavushka and asked for good weather so we could take beautiful photographs. I learned all the gods of Mordovia while working on a film about Stepan Erzya… The locals treat us kindly and often feed us: they bring us honey, cucumbers and tomatoes. Everyone is delighted to see their favorite actors in Mordovian costumes.

In the national costumes of Mordovia, the famous Russian artists, Stanislav Duzhnikov (god of winter and night Nazar-peace), Maria Poroshina (Marya Tsarevna) and others, feel as if they are in a school uniform: happy and carefree. At the same time, costume designers sometimes deliberately used eclecticism in the style of characters: Baba Yaga, played by Sparrow, wears an Erzya dress and at the same time a Moksha headdress.
