My Mother the State

Ieva Ozolina

Una got separated with her sister when she was adopted from an orphanage at the age of three. Since that day, it's been Una's dream to see her sister again, but for the next thirty years the sister existed only in Una's memories. Then, one day, she became alive. The film is like a puzzle that's created by unhappy parents and the system. A puzzle that Una tries to solve.
