Dir. Linda Olte, 90’, Latvia/Italy/Czech Republic, to be released 2022

Sisters

Anastasia (13) and Diana (9) are two sisters living in a Latvian orphanage. When the head of the orphanage tells them that the Johnson family from the USA wants to adopt them, Diana feels as if she’s won the lottery and cannot wait to go to the States. Anastasia, on the other hand, has mixed feelings. She is hoping to live with her biological mother, who makes a sudden return to their lives. Since the sisters cannot be split up, Anastasia will have to make decision that will impact both of their lives.
