Summary

The granddaughter of Baba Yaga yearns to change her destiny which ties her to her grandmother's enchanted house which moves from place to place at will.

Marinka dreams of a normal life, where her house stays somewhere long enough for her to make friends. But her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning.

For Marinka's grandmother is Baba Yaga, who guides spirits between this world and the next. Marinka longs to change her destiny and sets out to break free from her grandmother's footsteps, but her house has other ideas.
