A grotesque folk fantasy comedy from the western Ukrainian Carpathians. On his trip to the Ukraine a young American meets mythical female ghost figures, the love of his life and the popular avant-garde female pop band Dakh Daughters.
Yaro is supposed to inherit his late father's multi-million dollar holdings. Only if he marries a Ukrainian however; that's the condition. In search of a suitable woman he ends up in a Hutsul village, a minority that lives in the triangle between the Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia. This new-found happiness cannot last however, it is the 1930s after all; the Soviet Union's claim to power and the Second World War are already starting to cast shadows. The slightly weird and at times ironically kitschy adventure journey into the myths of the Carpathians is accompanied by the extraordinary performances of the Dakh Daughters, who mix traditional Ukrainian songs with rock, jazz and hip hop and turn them into something new in the process.
