Kolomijka is the first work of Ruslana in wonderful ethnic genre. This time all the impressive production is combined with comic style and pure eclecticism. "A "dull-witted" group working on music video Kolomijka comes to distant hutsul village to set up a casting for actors and musicians the whole village is gathered in the local club to show their best.

The hearts of the show business sharks are captured by a modest and tender "daughter of the mountains". The following is just like in all the Hollywood fairy tales with amazing transformations, fights and "happy end", with the only difference that the whole story happens not in the hills of Los Angeles but in the Carpathian Mountains. This little detail will be a big nice surprise for the audience".
