Sasha: So where is the North Pole?
Oloukine: On the top of the world! It's very cold there like a white desert. You have to walk for miles and miles on ice fields, with sleighs and dogs. But it's so beautiful... And what do we do when we reach the Pole, my Sashenka?
Sasha: We plant the flag!

It's not often we get a proper period piece in animation, so this was a real delight to watch. I can't really speak to the historical accuracy, but it FELT like a proper period piece at least. This is a story about how a privileged young woman learns to become independent and self-sufficient and I wish I had access to more media like this growing up.
