A Baltic road movie. We feel melancholy everywhere. The layer is thin and a threat is always close. Lenka recalls the life in a dictatorship. Martin rediscovers the poetry of Johannes Bobrowski.


in den Mooren,
draußen, ging auf
der Zorn.
(Johannes Bobrowski)

A Baltic road movie. The capital cities but also through the wilderness, always along the Belarusian and Russian borders.

Lenka's past catches up with her. Not the Baltic past, her own. The shared past of a life in a dictatorship. Images, feelings, memories come flooding back.

Despite the breathtaking nature, we feel an underlying melancholy and sadness everywhere. The layer is thin and a threat is always close.

Lenka relives her childhood and youth. Gratitude. We are free. For how much longer?

Martin rediscovers moods in the poetry of Johannes Bobrowski and combines his works with fragments of the poet's poetry.
