A nameless mother and a girl, constantly on the run. The mother runs away from the daughter in an attempt to start a new life. The girl, unwelcome and unloved, has no idea how to live without her mother. Mistakes are always repeated during this endless flight that resembles a spinning top (‘wolf’ in Russian), the girl’s only toy and the only thing that ties her to her mother. But one day the running comes to an end. “I just hope that the story tells [people] something new about love and its absence, about evil and about their own souls.” (Vasili Sigarev)
