What if your body had a mind of its own? “Pierogi Queen” Alex has achieved fortune and fame, at a cost. A health crisis coincides with the arrival of mythical crone Baba Yaga and Alex finds herself in late-night heart-to-hearts with her organs and bones. A light-hearted journey through stress, health, and the body-mind. High possibility of pierogies! (
