    Introduction by Kaarel Kuurmaa.

    In the eastern border of European Union lies Latgallia. It is the only catholic area in otherwise protestant Latvia. Before the holocaust it was also home for the Jiddish speaking Jews. In this calm and beautifully shot film the past is present as memories, and the future is soon to disappear. Katri Tenhola
