The Butterflies of Zagorsk. Natasha lives in Moscow. Deaf and blind since she was a child, she is now a philosopher, a poet and a practising psychologist, as well as a wife and mother. She is a product of the Zagorsk Home for deaf-blind children where a system of teaching has achieved results that are without parallel in the west.
The programme follows Natasha on a journey back to Zagorsk, where she has become a role model for
13-year-old Oksana, who has recently lost both vision and hearing. And 6-year-old Mansur, who lashed out at everyone who came near when he first arrived, has been calmed by the loving hands of his teachers.
