Ivan Prykhodko is one of the last folk artists in Ukraine. He is self-taught, lives in the countryside, and everything that comes from under his brushes is naive and honest art. Ivan’s perception of the world, his inner life, is full of beauty and joy. One day Ivan’s paintings are requested for an exhibition at the Art Arsenal, the country's main exhibition centre. Will he exchange his small village hut for the glamorous city life and the company of art critics and agents?
