Where the Finches Once Sang

Based on the phenomenon of 'emptying Baltic states' due to the massive emigration of the working-age population to other European countries in search of a better life, the film tells a story of an elderly man who has to sacrifice everything to help his daughter’s family caught in an impasse situation.
