Our house is immersed into the silence of the night, with shadows growing long, lit with random flashes of the warm flame of a kerosene lamp. For little Stesha the darkness turns out to be an occasion for the discovery of another world, sometimes scary, sometimes fascinating. Fragments of shaky memories, voices, flashes of light – the trembling sensations of early childhood that remain with us forever.
Mikhail Gorobchuk
