Matrona lives in an isolated village, where her life is
centered on pleasing her parents. She’s diligent in her
chores and has agreed to marry a man of their choosing.
But a visit to Slava, the local tradesman, threatens to
upend her entire life.
Entering his empty house, Matrona discovers a strange
collection of painted nesting dolls—one for every
villager. Fascinated, she can’t resist the urge to open
the doll with her father’s face. But when her father
begins acting strangely, she realizes Slava’s dolls are
much more than they seem.
When he learns what she’s done, Slava seizes the
opportunity to give Matrona stewardship over the dolls—
whether she wants it or not. Forced to open one of her
own dolls every three days, she falls deeper into the
grim power of Slava’s creations. But nothing can prepare
her for the profound secret hiding inside the fifth doll.
