After the 2-nd World War Europe was divided in two parts and the state of Lithuania found itself on the eastern side of the iron curtain. The Stalin regime quickly broke the traditional way of life, it cruelly suppressed any resistance. Hundreds of thousands of Lithuanians were deported to concentration camps in the North and East.


The main hero of the film- a ten year old girl- escapes from the exile train and starts a dangerous trip back to Lithuania, to her Motherland. The film is based on true story.
