This film is based on the life story of the distinguished Latvian cameraman John Dored and his wife, the painter Elisabeth Dored. The producers of the film have had access to John and Elisabeth's letters and other documents. This is a film about profession and destiny,love, life and death. Dored spent the last years of his life in Norway, which was his wife's native country. They lived on the shore of a lake near the small town of Halden. Local residents named a nearby island - John Dored Island. "I've always felt limited by scripts and staging, I always yearned for freedom. I became a film reporter to shoot footage of those things for which our Father in Heaven writes the screenplay," Dored wrote in his memoirs.
