The basis of the film tells a story of a land. Land  – as a universal geographical term and an abstract demiurgic act at the same time. And the life experience of a specific human – the author of the film. The role of this abstract and specific at the same time land this time goes to Latgale. This is a dream about a land that is always close but is impossible to reach.
