Shortly after the fall of the iron curtain, 12-year-old Kovas, travels to his mother, Viktorija’s homeland for the first time.

It has been 20 years since she escaped the USSR and has now returned to reclaim her beloved family estate. Viktorija’s former flame, Romas, claims to have useful connections and escorts them to the family land. When they find the tattered estate occupied by an impoverished family, they must consider how far they are willing to go to keep their dreams intact.
