Witch Baba Jaga lives in the capital of magic where she possesses unrestricted power and influence.

When Baba Jaga meets little Tanjuschka and her friend Iljuscha, she works out a plan. At the moment the children are happy. They play together; there are never any arguments. But if the witch succeeded to make enemies of the two children her own position would improve substantially.
Full of energy and with a fair bit of malice the witch sets to work. She plunges the children into the most dangerous adventures.
