Director Statement

This film is created in memory of my father Valdis who unexpectedly passed away in 2018 only 45 years young. To honour his lifestyle and meaning, only a year later I took his motorcycle for a trip to Romania. This film is about this trip and the legacy left to his 2 sons and daughter.
