“Scarecrow is a small budget drama with elements of supernatural in the northernmost parts of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). The Scarecrow (Valentina Romanova-Chyskyyrai) is a traditional healer. In her village people avoid and fear her but on the other, they go to her when there is no one else to go to. She is a hermit, a drinker, a holy fool and a healer. But she does not help everyone: every great gift is always a curse, therefore, the disease taken away from the other settles in the healer herself with poison and goes down the throat with black bile.”
