The code to unlocking this feature documentary is 1949, the year the director was born, and also the year of the return of Soviet repressions to Latvia. The film tells a very personal story against the background of less visited historic events – the death of director’s father due to the KGB repressions, which is closely linked to the devious game Soviet Latvia’s KGB played against Swedish-British-American spy agencies.
This film features the stories of people who, for various reasons, became players in this game. Several years were spent gathering unique documents, testimonies and materials detailing KGB accusations, and interviewing witnesses and experts to unmask one concrete episode of reprehensible Soviet deed.
