The protagonists of this animated short are Russian dolls, also known as matryoshka dolls, or babushka dolls - sets of beautifully painted wooden dolls of decreasing sizes that nestle one inside the other. Here, the dolls dance, twirl and swirl to Russian tunes before hopping back into the mother figure.
