The Manslayer / The Virgin / The Shadow

Three women separated by time and space, but joined by a parallel fate. Maara is forced into a marriage against her will in the 19th century Estonia. 150 years later, Elina has to choose between a forced marria-ge or deportation. Set in our contemporary time we meet Luna Lee, who has just escaped from home to get away from the chaotic modern life in search of a deeper meaning. With surrealism and historical facts, ve-teran art house director, Sulev Keedus, gives a melancholic depiction of the existence of three Estonian women in different epocs using one and the same actress. A moving and low-key story about finding yourself in a powerless existence.
