''The King's Ring'' premieres in Latvia

One of the past few years' most anticipated movies, The King's Ring (Latvian: Nameja gredzens) premiered on movie screens across Latvia on January 17.

Namejs Ring is  based on ancient Latvian history and folklore. Watch the trailer below (English).

To this day a large proportion of Latvians wear the distinctive Namejs ring depicted in the movie, which looks likely to explain why in melodramatic style.
