A tragicomic drama about Ansis, a young artist battered by conflicting allegiances as he witnesses the succession of brutal regimes assaulting the provincial backwater where he works and lives. As he goes from loving a fiery Jewish communist to finding himself betrothed to a Latvian Christian, the naïve yet wise Ansis exhibits the tenacity of the human spirit in the face of systematic, institutional inhumanity.
