Director: Una Celma

An ordinary retirement home in a border area of Latvia, one of many such homes. Where do our parents, grandparents and relatives spend their old age? This is a generation that was in the prime of life during the time of the Soviet Union, when the promise was: work, give all you can, and we’ll take care of you in old age. Systems change, and the reality of today is different. How should people live now?
Together with the protagonists of the film, Vilnis, Imants, Alberts and Elizabete, we will touch their world, their dreams and hopes.
