The Estonian director portrayed the difficult issue of deportation of thousands of people from the Baltic to Siberian Gulags in an original style. He staged static actors in 13 images and let the camera flow among them. The sound – noises and hushed conversations – creates the space and a strange feeling of timelessness.
