Zoryana Horobraya

Zorjana Horobraja

Directing: Elita Kļaviņa


An intimate portrait of a young woman – Zoryana – who, with her partner Edgars, lives in a remote Latvian countryside facing hardships of parenthood at the tender age of seventeen. Limited job opportunities available in their rural area have left the family mired in poverty. When Zoryana has to choose between life in the countryside, which is the location of the family nest, and a more convenient and materially more secure life in the city, it is the choice between her two closest people – her mother and her partner. The film sweeps us along on Zoryana’s journey, as she tries to escape her overprotective mother and find her own definition for her family’s happiness and existence.
