Hi, Rasma! - TRAILER  //  Čau, Rasma! - TRAILER (Orig.)

DIR: Laila Pakalniņa
2014 / Estonia / 52 min

Latvian ship RASMA, that sank near Mohni Island 70 years ago, is a reason to provoke the harmonious life of Northern Estonians living on the harshly beautiful coast by questioning whether at least some basis of their wellbeing might have come from the Latvian ship.
