The film represents the sufferings of these victims in contrast to the beautiful landscapes of Siberia. On June 14, 2009, a film crew, a number of those who survived, along with their own children, went on a pilgrimage to Siberia to install memorial plaques in memory of all those deported between 1941 and 1949.

A panel discussion will follow the film at 1:30 pm about the necessity of remembrance and forgiveness, reminding and compassion with director Dzintra Geka, (born in Riga, studied in Saint-Petersburg and Moscow, and returned to Latvia in the ’80s who has directed 40 documentaries and produced 30 other documentaries) Pēteris Vasks and Daniel Raiskin.
