Director Renārs Vimba’s debut feature follows Raja (Elina Vaska), struggling to escape her grueling life and find her mother, who had emigrated to England. An English-language Olympiad may provide the young woman the means to buy a plane ticket to London in this bittersweet coming-of-age tale. Newcomer Vaska was selected as one of the EFP Shooting Stars at the Berlin International Film Festival 2017. “Knockout performance from big-screen debutant Elina Vaska, who conveys her character’s feelings of anger, abandonment, responsibility and first love with conviction and authenticity.” - Alissa Simon, Variety.

Feature in Latvian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
