Year: 2019

In the space of just five minutes, Evgeny Terpugov creates an introspective study of womanhood and the process of rediscovering oneself. The poetically animated movie takes place in a sauna – or, more specifically, a typical Russian banya. A woman tortured by a relationship and perhaps even by her own life is prepared to leave both behind. The banya becomes a place of salvation, contemplation, physical and spiritual regeneration, and, eventually, liberation.

A woman tortured by a relationship and perhaps even by her own life is prepared to leave both behind. The banya becomes a place of salvation, contemplation, physical and spiritual regeneration, and, eventually, liberation.
