This short puppet film is based on the Slavic folk tale of the same name – a story about a wild woman or dark lady of magic.
She is described as a ferocious looking woman who flies around in a mortar, wields a pestle and dwells deep in the forest in a hut surrounded by a fence constructed from human bones.
Baba Yaga may help or hinder those that encounter or seek her out. She sometimes plays a maternal role, and also has associations with forest wildlife but is often depicted as a villain.
