The synopsis below may give away important plot points.


  • Told largely in flashbacks, this film begins by introducing two seemingly dissimilar characters first meeting. The story quickly progresses to reveal both are victims; one a victim of the comunist purge of facists in Estonia, the other the victim of sex trafficking.

    The major theme of the film is the life of the older woman--unrequetted love, suffering, hardship, selfishness and sacrifice. The younger woman's appearance and crisis serve as a catalyst for the elder to reexamine and reevaluate her own life.

    This film has a number of very graphic and very traumatic scenes, including rape, torture and murder. Not recommended for young viewers.
