Based on a poem by Anna Ignatova, this charming little animation is about how you never know where a day may take you. An elderly lady has run out of bread and pastry and just needs to make a quick trip to the shops. Things don't quite go to plan though, and she ends up on an extraordinary round-the-world adventure instead.
