There is a popular Latvian folksong which begins with the phrase ‘I was singing out high on a mountain’. The irony of it is that according to physical geography there are no mountains in Latvia. So, what exactly is the place where the Latvians are ‘singing out’? It may be safely stated that it’s the same place where they are skiing. A film examining a contradiction that doesn’t shy away from the impossibility of this reconciliation.
