In the Crosswind

June 14, 1941, 3 a.m.
Over 40000 people from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are deported by Soviets to Siberia, among them philosophy student Erna, a happily married mother of a little girl. Her husband is sent to prison camp, while Erna and her daughter are dispatched together with other women and children to remote Siberian territories for fifteen years. Despite hunger, fear and humiliation, Erna never loses her sense of freedom and hope of returning to homeland.
