Description

”Harsh circumstances force a resourceful and determined Latvian lass to mature beyond her years in this compelling, bittersweet coming-of-age story. The evocatively shot, realist tale benefits from a spare yet credible script and a knockout performance from big-screen debutante Elina Vaska who conveys her feelings of anger, abandonment, responsibility and first love with conviction and authenticity." - Alissa Simon, Variety
