More recently, Palekh was known on a global scale. Now it is rare if a modern resident of Russia remembers at least in which region of his country Palekh is located. How did it happen? Does the city with the highest density of artists per square meter deserve to be forgotten? And by the way, is it even a city? The heroes of the film are two local residents who will talk about their understanding of the Russian hinterland and the creative atmosphere that has not yet left Palekh.
