Baikal Babushka. Songs of Life

Lyubov Morekhodova is 78 years old and lives by herself on the shores of Lake Baikal, the world’s oldest and deepest lake. She carries out her daily chores and regularly meets reporters who began coming to Olkhon Island after a video of her skating across the frozen lake went viral. Despite the persistent attention of reporters, the harsh climate, and hard work, Lyubov refuses to move and live with her children in the city.
