Abandoned by their mother and stuck in a miserable living situation, 17-year old Raya and her adolescent brother Robis must decide between an orphanage or the guardianship of their grandmother, whom they despise.
Loneliness, disillusionment and the experience of first love reveal the character of Raya, a 17-year-old living in rural Latvia with her grandmother and her little brother Robis. A staggering turn of events shakes up their lives, and the young girl must come to decisions that even a grown woman would find difficult to make.
a family with no good options and the choices that catch up to them
The film is very bleak for the most part , created and directed from a completely different perspective than what I and most american viewers are used to. I came here to review the film because when I finished watching the film I thought I didn't like it but I changed my mind, it took a day for the film to sink in and once it did sink in it stayed with me. I'd say that's the test of a good movie. I saw it on Amazon Prime and I never would have found it except that when I searched for the movie MUD this film came up in the search as well.
