It is a cold December day. Deep in thought Ivanka Ivanova is walking down the street. She is thinking about New Year’s Eve. How to escape the everyday cares… An illustrated story that tells why we don’t need to try so hard to be happy.
Somewhere in our latitudes resides Ivanka Ivanova. One day she meets a stranger. As she is very chummy, she is quick to make contacts. A funny short story about the unexpected encounters in life; about how many surprises random communication could bring, if one can judge the person properly and … if one speaks other languages on top of one’s native language.
