Estonia’s official selection for the 89th Academy Awards is a darkly comic crime mystery about a put-upon mother tending to her comatose son after he is suspiciously shot. As his acquaintances stop by to visit, each reveals aspects of themselves that threaten to complicate the investigation to find the shooter.


This darkly comic crime mystery set in small-town Estonia centers on Elsa, the mother and full time caretaker of Lauri, a teacher who has been in a coma since being shot under shadowy circumstances. Attentive in her duties but at the end of her tether, Elsa receives Lauri’s visitors—friends, students, his girlfriend, his boss, and others—who come to update the unconscious Lauri on their lives and unburden themselves of their troubles. But as the police inquiry into the crime progresses, some of his closest ties are called into question.
