Yuri and Tamara, husband and wife, left St. Petersburg 25 years ago. They moved to the thick forest of Belorussia and decided to settle there and live like their ancestors did for centuries: surrounded by their own animals and the wild creatures that inhabit the woodlands. The closest village is 15 kilometres away. They have abandoned the city and chosen to live as peasants. They have no free time but they are happy with their lives and with their having become part of the forest they love and which has become their home.
