“Babushka. A Life-Long Journey”

Grandmother “Babushka” Katya
is 85 years old. She has 4 grandsons and 6 great-grandsons – a large family, members of which live in all parts of Russia, Ukraine and Finland. Even though babushka reached such an old age, she is not planning to slow down her life rhythm. And whichever place Ekaterina Afanasievna happens to end up, she always has her endless energy and cheerful life perception with her.

This is a story about one of the most important in life: a family, a house, love and ability to appreciate every moment of your life.
