Movie synopsis: Set in the Estonian countryside, the story portrays thirty-year-old Kertu (Ursula Ratasepp-Oja), who has spent all her life under the thumb of her violent father. She is consequently very shy and fearful. Yet she makes a desperate attempt to change her life forever. She sends a postcard to a local womaniser and drunkard, asking him to get her pregnant. A shy love between Kertu and Villu blossoms in the labyrinth of complicated relationships and tyranny. Kertu is another of the series of successful films by Ilmar Raag from Estonia that is receiving awards all over the world. Class (2007) won awards at festivals in Karlovy Vary, Locarno and Warsaw, where Kertu won the Audience Award.
