The nature of longing is observed allegorically in the film Tablemat of Baltic Sea. People’s longings as a rule remain hidden between their pillows, but what should the feathers in the pillow do with their longings?
In this film, two feathers perform a figure skating routine and draw Aleksander Suumann’s poem Tablemat of Baltic Sea on the ice.
