In the depths of pushcha, an ancient woodland, Ignat the beekeeper tends bees in beehives up in the trees, just as his father, grandfather, and their forefathers did. People say that Ignat gets everything he needs from the forest, that he knows every backwood and passage in the pushcha, that he talks with animals and trees… Even though Ignat lives in a world outside time, history does not slow down. The peaceful life according to old lore is abruptly interrupted. Pushcha falls into the hands of new owners. But Ignat will not rest in his quest to save the forest. It is his pushcha.
